[Mailman-Users] Service Unavailable Error

We just upgraded from Mailman 2.0 beta to 2.2.1 (finally...)

It was installed via the tar package and we ran configure / make install.

We run the sendmail program as our MTA and it is on a RH 6.2
(kernel version 2.2.19-6 )

After that the check_perms -f program was run and it did change
perms, so we ran it till it said everything was ok.

We've had a new list created, and added the aliases section to
the aliases file.  The web interface runs perfectly....

Now when we go to "submit" a posting, the mail daemon replies:

----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/home/mailman/mail/mailman post petracustdb"
(reason: service unavailable)
(expanded from: <petracustdb at petracomputing.com>)
----- Transcript of session follows -----
smrsh: mailman not available for sendmail programs
554 5.0.0 "|/home/mailman/mail/mailman post petracustdb"... Service unavailable

Can anyone tell us what the problem is??

Thank you in advance!
