Hello, I'm new on this list, so let me all greet you.
I have a wierd problem, which was described before  on this list (but
unfortunatly got no response).
I followed the Gentoo Docs as well as the installation manual on your website,
but I just can't get Mailman working with postfix.
Alias is set like this in postfix's main.cf:
alias_maps = hash:/etc/mail/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases
I looked at both files and they seem to be correct (at least to me):
server /usr/local/mailman/logs # cat ../data/aliases
# This file is generated by Mailman, and is kept in sync with the
# binary hash file aliases.db. YOU SHOULD NOT MANUALLY EDIT THIS FILE
# unless you know what you're doing, and can keep the two files properly
# in sync. If you screw it up, you're on your own.
# The ultimate loop stopper address
# STANZA START: mailman

mailman: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post mailman"
mailman-admin: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin mailman"
mailman-bounces: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces mailman"
mailman-confirm: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman confirm mailman"
mailman-join: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman join mailman"
mailman-leave: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman leave mailman"
mailman-owner: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman owner mailman"

mailman-subscribe: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe mailman"
mailman-unsubscribe: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe mailman"
# STANZA END: mailman
If I add above lines to /etc/mail/aliases and run newaliases, I get:
May 28 23:51:16 server mail-wrapper: Group mismatch error. Mailman expected
the mail wrapper script to be executed as group "mailman", but the system's
mail server executed the mail script as group "nobody". Try tweaking the
mail server to run the script as group "mailman", or re-run configure,
providing the command line option `--with-mail-gid=nobody'.

message-id=<20050528215117.0B2B646AAA at jankoh.dyndns.org>
If I not add it, I get:
May 28 23:51:59 server postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from
localhost[127.0.0.1]: 550 <mailman-owner at XXX.tld>: Recipient address
rejected: User unknown in local recipient table;
from=<mailman-bounces at XXX.tld> to=<mailman-owner at XXX.tld> proto=ESMTP
May 28 23:51:59 server postfix/smtpd: disconnect from
I'm sure I just overlooked something obvious, but the only thing I found was
(as said) .
Hoping for an answer.
Best regards Jan
