Do you mean lists.mglug.de?

If you carefully read 'bin/newlist --help' you will see the command you
want is

bin/newlist list at lists.mglug.de

i.e., listname at url_host, not listname at email_host

I know this is confusing and it has been addressed in 2.1.6 by adding
new options so you could do

bin/newlist list --urlhost=lists.mglug.de

but this won't work in 2.1.5.
