<Directory /var/mailman/archives>
    Options +FollowSymlinks

DEFAULT_URL       = 'http://localhost/mailman/'

   2. Create a mailing list:

[root prompt]# cd /var/mailman
[root prompt]# bin/newlist test           - Creates a
mailing list called test.
               Enter the email address of the person
running the list:
               Initial test password:    - Type it
correctly. There is no verification!

test:                    "|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper
post test"
