[Mailman-Users] Mailman 2.0.11 + qmail

I am using Debian woody along with the 2.0.11 Mailman debian package.
The CGI-scripts are working, now I am trying to set up the connection
to qmail.

For this purpose I am using qmail-to-mailman.py with these settings:
# Configuration variables - Change these for your site if necessary.
MailmanHome = "/var/lib/mailman"; # Mailman home directory.
MailmanOwner = "postmaster at localhost"; # Postmaster and abuse mail recepient.
MailmanUser = "list"; # Mailman user, in case you use other as mailman (as does Debian)

This is on a shared web+mailserver using virtualdomains like this:
(the Maildirs are in /home/m2004001/popusers/ldc.de

I used these instructions in qmail-to-mailman.py to set it up:
# To configure a virtual domain to connect to mailman, create these files:
# ~mailman/.qmail-default
# |preline /usr/bin/python /var/lib/mailman/bin/qmail-to-mailman.py
# /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains:
# DOMAIN.COM:mailman
I also added "mailman.ldc.de" to /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts.
(mailman.ldc.de is now only an /etc/hosts entry, as I am testing this
on a local backup copy of the server)

But when I reply to a subscription request message I always get a bounce:

please tell me if you need more information. thank you,
