	It would appear that you're using procmail as your local delivery 
agent, and due to a permissions problem procmail isn't able to create 
the specified user mailbox.

	Check your aliases, your mailing list subscriptions, your postfix 
configuration, and your procmail configuration.  I'd be willing to 
bet large sums of money that the problem is within postfix and/or 
procmail, and is *NOT* a problem with Mailman.

	Beyond identifying the source of the problem, if you need further 
help with postfix or procmail, you should use resources specific to 
these packages, such as their mailing lists, newsgroups, FAQs, online 
documentation, books, etc....  There's not a whole lot more we're 
likely to be able to do to help you with these parts.
