[Mailman-Users] Initial Setup Issues

Well everything seems to be OK, however here are the contents of my
/home/mailman/logs/subscribe file

Feb 03 18:13:31 2003 (16112) chico: pending testuser1 at dino.me.uk
Feb 03 18:15:07 2003 (16423) chico: pending dinouk at orange.net
Feb 03 18:16:14 2003 (16755) chico: new kljlkj at dino.me.uk
Feb 03 18:28:52 2003 (17982) chico: pending testuser2 at dino.me.uk

User kljlkj at dino.me.uk is the one that I added manually via the web
interface, the others I subbed via the user page.

It looks like user requests are being held for some reason if they are
submitted by potential users, but getting thru if me as the admin
submits them...


Again any help would be gratefully received!

Check the aliases that you created and make sure that they are pointing
to mailman post scripts (with your list name as one of the inputs).

Also take a look at the steps in FAQ 3.14.  This was written
specifically to help new installers of Mailman v2.0.13 who are having
problems getting mail to go to the lists.
