Usually the mail alias definitions output by the list creation process do 
the job. You must have an MTA such as Sendmail or Postfix running on your 
Mailman server. The mail alias definitions refer to a Mailman delivery 
script to be run by the MTA on your Mailman server when it has incoming 
email for one of a list's aliases.

Assuming you are running MM 2.1.x

Are you using the MM site password or did you define a list creation 
password by $prefix/bin/mmsitepass with the -c option and use that?
