hello. i have installed mailman 2.0.11-1woody8 from debian. MM working under exim 4.22, and working correctly except one thing.

i got a message from wrapper with error code 6, and message in syslog listed below

Mailman mail-wrapper: Illegal command: admin

this message appears, when coming mail to 'listname-admin at domain.com'.

exim debug show, that wrapper run with following arguments:

14:58:36 10644 direct command after expansion:
14:58:36 10644   argv[0] = /var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper
14:58:36 10644   argv[1] = admin
14:58:36 10644   argv[2] = news

so, this something like "wrapper admin news". this configuration i got from internet, and do not sure in it cleaness. so, what i need to seng via arguments to wrapper, when mail to listname-admin received? may be i dont need to route mail to admins via mailman router?


# wrapper script for mailman
# user and group for mailman

    driver = accept
    require_files =  MAILMAN_HOME/lists/$local_part/config.db
    local_part_suffix = -bounces : -bounces+* : -confirm+* : -join : -leave : -owner : -request: -admin
    transport = mailman_transport

    driver = pipe
    command = MAILMAN_WRAP '${if def:local_part_suffix \
        {${sg{$local_part_suffix}{-(\\w+)(\\+.*)?}{\$1}}} {post}}' $local_part
        current_directory = MAILMAN_HOME
        home_directory = MAILMAN_HOME
        user = MAILMAN_USER
        group = MAILMAN_GROUP
