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?
