Hi All,

I am sure this has been addressed before but I am cant find it in the 
Archives.  I am setting up a mailman server on a new debian sarge 
install with exim4.  I installed the debian packages and am now geting 
bounce notices about gid:

The following text was generated during the delivery attempt:

------ pipe to |/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post mailman
       generated by mailman at adoptionweek.com ------

Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail
wrapper script to be executed as group "daemon", but
the system's mail server executed the mail script as
group "Debian-exim".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the
script as group "daemon", or re-run configure, 
providing the command line option `--with-mail-gid=Debian-exim'.

What is the correct 'debian' way to to fix this?
