[Mailman-Users] trying to subscribe

This is a typical Sendmail/MTA problem.
You have the MX setup right in DNS, so the mail arrives at your server -
but you haven't added the DNS name as a valid name for your MTA so your
mail server sees the mail but does not think the mail is for local

For Sendmail you would modify your /etc/mail/sendmail.cw file (or
whatever they call it now-a-days).  For Postfix you would need to edit
/etc/postfix/main.cf (I think...).

Anyway, check your MTA documentation or FAQ list.  I'm sure this is
mentioned prominently there as it is a common mis-configuration (so
you're in good company at least).

Best of Luck - Jon Carnes
