I get the following error,

May 12 19:57:32 [Mailman mail-wrapper] Group mismatch error.  Mailman
expected the mail_wrapper script to be executed as group "mailman",
but_the system's mail server executed the mail script as_group "nobody".
Try tweaking the mail server to run the_script as group "mailman", or
re-run configure, _providing the command line option

where exactly is the 'configure' command, I checked inside of the mailman
bin directory but it was not there.  My guess is that it refers to the
./configure script to be run before installing.  Unfortuatly I installed
using a premade package and do not have the source on hand.  Any way to
have the program expect group nobody without doing that or a way to make
postfix use that group to run /only/ that script?

The lines which your eye falls on first here were written last.  Their
purpose is to make yet another attempt to force into the form of a letter
the detailed investigation which is sent to you herewith.  These lines
correspond, then, with the last lines and together they form an envelope,
thus indicating in an external way what interal proofs in many ways will
convince you of, that this is a letter you are reading.
