[Mailman-Users] fetching of new mail does not work

I have created a mailing list (support at lifeforce.de). The Mailbox is hosted
by strato (www.strato.de) and I want to pop it via fetchmail...(mailboxname:
support at lifeforce.de , alias1: support-admin , alias2: support-request) .

fetchmail works, but the messages in the mailbox are skipped - WHY?

i have created the list via the newlist-script...
then i have copied the aliases to my /etc/aliases.d/mailman  file...

then i ran newaliases.

the /etc/aliases.d/mailman.db file is younger than the mailman file in the
same directory. because of newaliases this should not be , OR?

can anyone help me.... when i subscribe to a list, the subscriptionmail is
transfered to me, but my answer is totaly ignored...

what did i do wrong?

thanks for any help
