Well, yeah, I did read that thing. I did not remove (in Solaris 7) 
/var/spool/cron/cronjobs/mailman prior to the install.

So, I've rm'd that cronjob. We'd been running that cron from root 
anyway, so I commented all out from there as well.  I did a 
configure, make install all over again. I still am getting the same 
error message by email. Any suggestions? The original install of MM 
made me feel pretty smart. This one makes me feel dumb.
