I've been using Mailman for a few years (since 2.0.x), but I'm newly
subscribed to the list. Yeah, another guy who subbed because he needs
some help! ;-)
I've been using 2.1.2 since last Fall, upgraded this morning to
2.1.5. While this fixed a couple of problems I was having, it seems to
have left me with a new one. Nothing posted to the list address is being
processed by mailman. I have tested the aliases, and they are not the
## test3 mailing list
test3: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post test3"
test3-admin: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin test3"
test3-bounces: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces test3"
test3-confirm: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman confirm test3"
...and so on. If I alias "test3" to another known e-mail address, it
comes through with no problem. But with it set as above, it does not
seem to get to mailman. I see no new heldmsg-test3-####.pck file in
Permissions on /usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman are:
-rwxr-sr-x 1 root mailman 18396 Aug 3 16:03 mailman
Couple more bits of information: First, when I installed it, I did
that as root. I know the instructions said not to do that. I could not
run 'make install' under another username. When I did run 'make install'
as root, it ran through, all the way to converting the existing lists
(and the web interface all works fine). But I did get an error at the end:
Updating Mailman 2.1.4 pending.pck database
Traceback (most recent call last):

Stop in /usr/local/mailman-2.1.5.
If this information makes sense to anyone, and you have a
suggestion, I would be much obliged. Obviously I'm willing to provide
any other information needed. Thanks so much!
