We just recently installed Mailman 2.1 on our Unix server. We have gone
over the install document several times to see what we missed. We would
like our users to be able to send an email to the list with subject
subscribe. When we test this we never see the mail messages.
It would appear that it is a domain issue. Here is what we see in the
logs when we try to do this:

We are able to get confirmation, via email, when we create a new mailing
When we subscribe to a list via the web site we successfully get
subscribe and a confirmation email is sent back to the user, after about
10 minutes. 
We are seeing this message in /usr/local/mailman/logs

Any ideas?
