Possible scenarios:

1) You are redirected to another URL so that the browser doesn't send 
the required cookie.

Check your browsers URL window with wide open eyes if there is something 

2) There is an old and stale cookie remained in your browser and the 
browser is sending it together with the new cookie. The server only 
cheking the old one.

Clear all the cookies related to your mailman site and retry.

They are only suggestions. May work, may not work....
