in the bin directory you have check_perms, which could help,
also changing the list stuff to group nobody should help..

Onderwerp: [Mailman-Users] problems with --with-mail-gid


I have configured mailman with --with-mail-gid=nobody and created some
lists a long time ago.

Two weeks ago I updated to mailman 2.1.4 and configured mailman with
--with-mail-gid=mailman and added again some lists.

Since that date all old lists didn't work, but all the new ones did.

I got this error:
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; Command died with status 2:
    "/home/mailman/mail/mailman post test". Command output: Group mismatch
    error.  Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be executed as group
    "mailman", but the system's mail server executed the mail script as
    "nobody".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as group
    "mailman", or re-run configure,  providing the command line option

To solve the problem with the gid id configured the new version with
--with-mail-gid=nobody again in installed it.

Since that moment the new lists don't work any more.

It seems to me, that a list only with if the --with-mail-gid of the
running mailman is the same as the list was created.

How can I solve my problem to get all lists working?
