[Mailman-Users] Cron sending mailman error every 15 mins

I have had a lot of trouble getting mailman to run on my debian box, and
I am going to setup another box to play with it on because of said
trouble...but I am having a really major issue.

Every fifteen minutes or so I get the following email:

from: root at myserver
subject: Cron <mail at myserver>   if [ -x /usr/sbin/exim -a -f
/etc/exim/exim.conf ]; then /usr/sbin/exim -q ; fi

2002-10-18 23:23:02 182JT9-0003AY-03 Neither the system_aliases director
nor the address_pipe transport set a uid for local delivery of
|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner cr

Cron is sending it regularly and it is almost self DOS'ing itself.  I
su'd to the mail user and checked his crontab with a "crontab -u mail
-l" and it says there is no crontab for user.  I tried to do the same
from many of the other possible users that mail could have dealt with to
no avail.

If anyone knows how I can find out what is causing this and stop it I
would be eternally grateful.  I saw some posts in the past about this
issue but was unable to find any solutions.
