Without having to read 6k of man pages on Cron can someone please tell me
how to trigger a program to run upon receiving mail, either to list or
regular mail.

I get the address that is listed for the administrator of the mailman

This resulted in the same sort of bounce notification message as
before.  So I guess the aliases are OK.  Where else could the problem
be?  If this isn't happening on anyone else's system, it must be a
problem with the way I upgraded this server or something.  But again,
it also seems to be happening on another server I didn't upgrade.

Thanks again for helping to get to the bottom of this,
