[Mailman-Users] Not talking to Qmail?

Not exactly.  Mail sent to the mailman lists just seems to disappear 
into a void.  As does any mail generated by Mailman, like when you 
subscribe to the list through the web interface.  Mailman records that 
it tried to send a message to the user in the smtp and bounce logs, but 
/var/log/maillog shows no record of it.

Qmail seems to be working fine otherwise.  The netstat command you 
suggested gives an output exactly like you indicated it would.  Mail 
messages get sent out from that box just fine, and messages in to not 
list addresses get delivered just fine.
