Dear All,
I have installed Mailman 2.1.2 successfully.
The problem is :
I created a newlist,it says
# /bin newlist mylist
Enter the email of the person running the list:mylist at rupak.com
Initial mylist password:
mylist: "|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper post mylist"
mylist-admin: "|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner mylist"
mylist-request: "|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd mylist"
mylist-owner: mylist-admin

To finish creating your mailing list,you must edit your /etc/aliases (or equivalent) file by
adding the fllowing lines, and possibly running the newaliases program
Hit enter to notify mylist owner..
and comes out..
(1) Now the problem is there is no /aliases directory under /etc.
and there is no aliases folder at all on my system , but i could find aliases.h 
in /usr/include/aliases.h.(but i am sure this is not the right place for aliases)..
so where & how should i store the above aliases.??
(2) My default MTA is SendMail (on RedHat linux 7.2).
so what should options should i configure on SendMail to keep my lists working
(3) when i try to access www.rupak.com/mailman/create
my browser returns "Unknown Host"
solution for this as well..
Plz suggest me , how to proceed further.
Thanx in advance..
