Hello all!
I'm using Mailman as my org's listserv. I didn't set it up, so I'm a bit lost with this error message. I get the error  when I click on the Overview of all lists link at the bottom of the page. I need to add some more lists but I can't because I now get this message. I am using a hosting service, so I don't have a lot of acces to the nuts and bolts of the server and services.
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.5
