Hmmm, where exactly do your Mailmail aliases files live? There appears to be some be some conflict in the paths shown above. Try executing the genaliases command from the mailman top-level directory as:
and see if that works for you. Also, please keep posts and replies on the list, helps to build the archive for future reference.
