I'm trying to help someone set up a Mailman list. He has Debian, Mailman 
version: 2.0.13-2 and Postfix's version: 1.1.11-2.

He looked over the web and the archives here and is stuck.

The problem:

 >After running newlist, I added the following to
 > Postfix's alias table using postalias:
 > icare: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post icare"
 > icare-admin: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner icare"
 > icare-request: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd icare"
 > icare-owner: icare-admin
 > I checked in the MySQL alias table and the entries were added
 > properly.
 > I ran newaliases like the FAQs recommend, yet Postfix still complains

I'm running Mailman 2.0.13 but using sendmail and can't help with 
Postfix. Any clues?
