> franklin-unsubscribe:  "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe
> franklin"

Thanks everyone for the quick response. In addition to adding the aliases
above I had to create forwarding entries for each address in virtusertable,

franklin at acme.com       franklin

franklin:              "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post franklin"

Now I'm getting the error:
Apr 29 10:04:45 localhost 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 "daemon".
Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as group "mailman", or re-run
configure,  providing the command line option `--with-mail-gid=daemon'.

So, I guess I have to re-run configure?
