	Thanks for the quick response, and I wish that were true.  Here are the entries copied from my /etc/mail/aliases file which according to my sendmail.cf (O AliasFile=/etc/mail/aliases) should be where to put them:

mailman:              "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman post mailman"
mailman-admin:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman admin mailman"
mailman-bounces:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman bounces mailman"
mailman-confirm:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman confirm mailman"
mailman-join:         "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman join mailman"
mailman-leave:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman leave mailman"
mailman-owner:        "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman owner mailman"
mailman-request:      "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman request mailman"
mailman-subscribe:    "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe mailman"
mailman-unsubscribe:  "|/var/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe mailman"

I appreciate the help, but I have been through this.

	This is an alias problem.  The alias entries for this list 
haven't been created, or sendmail hasn't been told about the 
additional alias file where these entries exist.

	This stuff should be covered in the README.SENDMAIL file.
