I get the following error when trying to subscribe to a newly created 

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe g-force"
    (reason: 1)
    (expanded from: <g-force-subscribe at xxxxxxxxxxxx.org>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----

    msgfp = open(msgfile, 'w')

554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 1

Can anyone suggest what is wrong? I suspect it has something to do with 
permissions, but I don't know how to confirm that.
