	I noticed your List is 'test2' instead of just 'test'
as most install paperwork describes...

	Did you correctly alias everything to 'test2' or just
to 'test', which would possibly cause the problem?  Additionally,
did you create a user 'test2' for Mailman to deal with for
the list traffic?

	Just a thought...
