I have started setting up mailing lists provided by a VPS hosting 
service (using PLESK as a management tool). I have put this problem 
to them and have not received a particularly useful set of responses 
i.e after many support exchanges I still have the problem.

When I configure Mailman, everything appears to be Ok and accepts 
changes I have made. One big problem, however, is that it doesn't 

I have been using macjordomo for some years now and I understand that 
the philosophy is different but I have headed down a number of dead 
ends (mainly to do with DNS) in trying to troubleshoot the problem.

Here are the symptoms, having subscribed people using mass subscription

1	if I post a message to the list (from a members email client) 
ie list at domain.com, it appears to have been successful, I don't get 
any bad address replies. But no-one on the list receives the message.

2	There are no archives in the list info, It states that no 
postings have been received.

3	If someone subscribes using the listinfo page, they don't get 
a subscription acknowledgement and they don't appear in the list of 
subscribers under Membership list in Membership management at the 
admin pages.

I am hoping this is an easily rectifiable problem. the helpdesk at 
the VPS hosting service have been getting me to try to resolve some 
DNS issues which i believe I have done and still get the same 
problems. I have deleted lists and started new ones - all with the 
same results.

Hope someone can help.

PS I tried to subscribe to List Owners from the Python page but the 
links didn't work.
