My problem is I get the following error:

May 11 14:55:01 2004 (23921) error opening connection to nntp_host:
(146, 'Connection refused')

It looks like Mailman is trying to connect to  my newserver on port 146 
if I'm reading this right. My *nix host is set to nntp on port 119. 
Port 119 does appear to work, I am able to make a connection to the 
news server when I telnet to it on that port 119 but  receive a similar 
looking error when I telnet port 146.

directory.nac.uci.edu% telnet news.service.uci.edu 146
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

I have not been able to find any mailman configurations to change this.

Any ideas?
