It looks like a simple aliasing problem.  You'll need to find your aliases 
file for your distro (mine is /etc/aliases), and add something like:
test-owner: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman owner test"
...to it.
When you created the list it should have given you this list of aliases to 
insert.  There is one alias for each virtual email address used by 
mailman: test-request; test-subscribe etc.  I can post my aliases stub 
here if you want.

Then rebuild the aliases db with something like:

Obviously the specifics depend on which versions of sendmail and mailman 
you are running, and in which folder you have installed it.
