Thanks for the suggestions. I hate asking but I will. I vaguely 
understand the 'wrapper' concept, but you lost me in telling me to 
change the group, I know what a group is in linux, that one may belong 
to various groups, which permits or denys access and executive privilege 
based on the group, but i am miffed how to change a group under which 
some process or application operates. How do I change it's group, or 
even determine what group it works under? If it's too painful, or 
complex, and simply reconfiguring Mailman to work better with Exim is 
preferable, point the way, how to rebuild mailman to include all the 
right stuff.

Thanks for helping and not flaming me..
