i installed the latest version of mailman on Apache and use Sendmail as the
MTA, but when the automated process tries to run mailman it comes back with
an error.

i checked all the permissions and the owner of all the files has write
privilages.  the owner of them is mailman, so i don't see how Permissions to
write are being denied.  any advice?
