[Mailman-Users] New Subscriptions (2.1.5)

Thanks for the quick reply. I have been searching mailing list archives  
and the faq for keywords such as no confirmation email, no moderation  
email, no admin email, etc

I checked out the link you posted and it didn't make much sense to me.  
Users are able to request the subscription and I see the entry in the  
log for the pending subscription. All admin commands seem to save and  
existing users are able to remove themselves from the list.

What isn't happening is any email besides posts to the mailing lists  
are being sent out. I just find this odd as some mail goes out (posts)  
and others do not (single emails).

I am not sure where to look next. I have also test this:

bash-2.04$ bin/withlist -l users
Loading list users (locked)
The variable `m' is the users MailList instance
 >>> print  m.NumRequestsPending()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: users
bash-2.04$ /usr/local/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/cron/checkdbs

But never receive any email stating that there are messages needing  
attention, don't see any errors or even logs records in any of the  
mailman log files nor in messages or maillog.

It just doesn't appear to be trying to send anything out, and it is  
really strange to me. Please if you have any suggestions on what to  
check I am sure it is probably a silly configuration issue.
