[Mailman-Users] Password frustration - 2.1b3

Well, at the time I had a permissions issue. So I chowned the whole tree to
mailman:mailman, and went back and did "config.status" and "make install" to ratify
it. Then I did a couple of other little things I had overlooked in the INSTALL file.
Nothing is being logged in the mailman/logs to speak of, certainly none of my test

I discovered from the /var/log/maillog file that I had a problem with my aliases, and
came to figure out that I was editing /etc/postfix/aliases but newaliases was using
the /etc/aliases file to create an aliases.db file I now have added all the correct
aliases (from bin/genaliases) to the /etc/aliases file, run newaliases, and just in
case, copied both to /etc/postfix/.

Here's the maillog tail from my last attempt to post:

Incidentally, this message has not been bounced.

I have to get on a plane in a few hours, and would like not to leave the system in
this state for the next week!
