find out what user and group your mail server MTA is running with.
If its nobody then you should give command:
./configure --prefix=/Users/mailman --with-mail-gid=nobody --with-cgi-gid=www

If its postfix use this:
./configure --prefix=/Users/mailman --with-mail-gid=postfix

that's it !

One RAID to backup them all, one RAID to find them, one RAID to bring them
all and in the darkness bind them.
