[Mailman-Users] still having difficulty: this time for responses

I actually tried all the stuff in that readme first, and that did not seem 
to work either.  I am still stuck at the stage where I can't get anything 
processed by mailman beyond the notification to the list admin.  When 
someone responds via email, nothing happens.  I am starting to give up on 
exim and thinking qmail may be my best option, but if there are any ideas, 
please let me know.

That document was intended for Mailman 2.0.x users.

Then don't do that.  :-)   Your MAILMAN_HOME directory is
probably /usr/local/mailman.  Read README.EXIM in the 
Mailman source tarball (which has been revised to match
Mailman 2.1.x).
