[Mailman-Users] mailertable ignored by sendmail

I'm attempting to install Mailman on a Redhat linux box and integrate it 
with Sendmail. 

When I set Mailman to be the local service (just by switching Mlocal and 
Mmailman in sendmail.cf <http://sendmail.cf>), it works fine and dandy, but 
I can't seem to get sendmail to process any rules in mailertable even when I 
try simple examples posted on the net. mailertable.db is being generated 
each time mailertable is edited and sendmail is restarted. I've been through 
mm-handler.readme a few times (it needs some editing, btw) and nothing seems 
to account for this. 

My mailertable looks like:

lists.mydomain.com <http://lists.mydomain.com>

All mail that I send to list at lists.mydomain.com simply goes right on through 
to my usual mail server and bounces back, even when I'm talking to my 
localhost sendmail. 

A side note: The provided mailman.mc <http://mailman.mc> file generates a 
.cf file that's unusable by sendmail, it seems that when sendmail is 
restarted there are a bunch of syntax errors:

line 7: fileclass: cannot open 'ATURE(local_procmail)': No such file or 
554 5.0.0 /etc/mail/sendmail.cf: line 8: MAILER(local): A= argument required

... etc etc etc

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
