[Mailman-Users] 'unknown user' error

I created a small list with 4 subscribers.  After sending the first
e-mail, I get this bounced back to me.  I never entered a user with this
name, no record of this user is listed in ~/logs/subscribe

I have been puzzled over this for about the past hour or so.

BTW, thanks to all those who helped me with my install.  Once made, the
rest of the install went off without a single problem.
