You haven't created the aliases shown when ran the 'newlist'
command to make a list.

Or, if you are using one of the mail server configurations that
automatically determine the presence of your mailing lists, you
haven't properly configured your mail server.  Read the
README.xxx file where xxx is your mailserver.  (Also read
the INSTALL document.)
