Thanks to everyone who has emailed me with assistance so far. I have
some follow up questions:
Following FAQ 3.1.4, I ran check perms. I see a print out of perms.
does this command just tell you what they should be; does it fix them?
As per Aliases, the FAQ is confusing to me, but may be the cause of
my problems. I do not understand how to tell if postfix is
recognizing the ~mailman/data/aliases file.
How do I rebuild the aliases.db file?
