On sending a eMail to my mailing-list I get the following error.

(from "tail -F -n 30 /var/log/maillog")
May  5 15:44:03 smesrv sendmail[24051]: i45Di3D5024051: <mylist at smesrv.sme-
union.org>... User unknown
May  5 15:44:03 smesrv sendmail[24051]: i45Di3D5024051: from=<waltermauritz at gmx.at>, 
size=0, class=0, nrcpts=0, proto=SMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=pop.gmx.net []

-> mylist at smesrv.sme-union.org --- user unknown

I have set up
- mailman 
- with sendmail
- on redhat

I have sticked to the manual of the distribution

I use a "mailertable"
smesrv.sme-union.org    mailman:smesrv.sme-union.org

... which should put all mails not known (like "mylist" isnt a system user) to the Mail Delivery 
Agent, defined in sendmail.mc:

#snip from /etc/mail/sendmail.mc
Mmailman, P=/etc/mail/mm-handler, F=rDFMhlqSu, U=mailman:mailman,
  S=EnvFromL, R=EnvToL/HdrToL,
  A=mm-handler $h $u

- mailertable has been done in db
- sendmail.mc done to .fc
- /etc/mail/mm-handler is executable to all

But for some reason this does NOT WORK. --- user unknown

What am I doing wrong?

btw here my "mm_cfg.py"
from Defaults import *

IMAGE_LOGOS = '/icons/'

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'smesrv.sme-union.org'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'smesrv.sme-union.org'


Questions to you:
1) Do you know what I have done wrong?
2) Or can you tell me how to set up the aliases manually? (Where does "mylist at smesrv.sme-
union.org" has to point in virtuser..

Thanks for any help
