Jim..Thanks for the response....
I'm starting to wonder if I have a bigger issue.  I'm using Mailman
2.1.4 with EXIM 3.35. I can't find any documentation that tells me how
to set these versions up together. It's either Mailman 2.1 and EXIM 4 or
Mailman 2 and EXIM 3.  Could this be the problem?  Any pointers on
proper documentation?  Should I upgrade? Also I do have "mailowner" in
my EXIM.conf.  Should I remove it? Attached - EXIM.conf (Entire File)

One of the things that I like about Exim is its excellent
documentation.  You should study Exim's doc/spec.txt.

Note that if you are using the scheme that allows Exim to
discover the mailing lists by testing for the list's
configuration files, you do not want to add them to your
aliases file.

I'm surprised you run Mailman as root.

You want MAILMAN_WRAP to point to the wrapper program which is
normally in MAILMAN/mail/mailman, where MAILMAN is typically
/usr/local/mailman.  You didn't show enough of your Exim
configuration file to be sure, but
># home dir for mailman                    
looks suspicious.  I would expect that to be
or use MAILMAN0 in other places in your exim.conf.
I still think you have a reference to the old Mailman 2.0.x
'mailowner' wrapper somewhere in your Exim configuration.
