[Mailman-Users] "User unknown in local recipient table" Error

 In rereading
<Thanks Dan!>, I checked that data/aliases and data/aliases.db were both
group writable.  Oddly aliases.db was not but the aliases was.   When I
changed that to make it group writable all three lists now work.  Odd
that two lists worked with that setting and the one didn't.  Another
strange aspect is that there were no errors logged for this.  The latter
warrants further investigation.

Thanks for the help.

Perhaps there is a permissions issue that prevented the postalias
command from updating the aliases.db file with the third list's aliases
when run from the web interface.

You could try running postalias manually and see if that fixes the
