[Mailman-Users] Can't post to list

mailmanctl was started.  I did create the mailman list as well.  The
return message that I'm getting when trying to post to the list now is :

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:	FW: test
      Sent:	11/6/2003 11:30 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      connery at myhost.hp.com on 11/6/2003 11:28 AM
            There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's
email server.  Please contact your system administrator.
            < myhost.hp.com #5.5.0 X-Unix; 69>

Still haven't figured the problem out.  Any other ideas?

Did you create the mailman site list, run '$prefix/bin/mailmanctl 
start' and install the mailman crontab?
