Thanks for the reply,

I figured that one out, my : scriptalias /pipermail/... and alias 
/mailman/... values in my mailman.conf file, which is included in apaches 
httpd.conf file weren't what they were supposed to be,
they were pointing to var/mailman/cgi-bin ..or something like that (Is that 
a default value?) instead of

But now I'm having an even stranger problem!

when I go to http://www.aishlist.com/mailman/create I get the following:

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.6b4

We're sorry, we hit a bug!
Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of 
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but 
the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

I tried to find the solution on the web, but couldn't find anything that 
really helped me. I found some answers regarding postfix
permissions. well, here are the permissions on my .../mailman/data folder:

[root at aishlist data]# ls -l
total 56
-rw-r-----  1 root     mailman    41 Mar 28 01:28 adm.pw
-rw-rw----  1 mailman  mailman  8772 Mar 28 02:06 aliases
-rw-rw----  1 mailman  mailman 12288 Mar 28 02:06 aliases.db
-rw-r-----  1 root     mailman    41 Mar 28 01:28 creator.pw
-rw-r--r--  1 aishlist mailman    10 Mar 22 12:33 last_mailman_version
-rw-rw----  1 mailman  mailman     6 Mar 28 03:19 master-qrunner.pid
-rw-r--r--  1 mailman  mailman 14110 Mar 22 12:32 sitelist.cfg

in main.cf for postfix configuration I've got:
alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases

and BTW, my /usr/local/mailman/logs/error file is empty!

Any ideas?

Thanks, I really appreciate your help
