Hello Mark (and others as well)

Thank you for your posting which seemed to explain the problem, but....

Here came two examples from the aliases-file:

1) Newly created list, which needs postfif-gid:

# STANZA START: hn11240914-l
# CREATED: Thu Nov 24 08:50:35 2005
hn11240914-l:             "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-admin:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman admin hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-bounces:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman bounces hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-confirm:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman confirm hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-join:        "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman join hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-leave:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman leave hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-owner:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman owner hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-request:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-subscribe:   "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe hn11240914-l"
hn11240914-l-unsubscribe: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe hn11240914-l"
# STANZA END: hn11240914-l

With mail-gid 65533 gives: 

<hn11240914-l at listserv.kuntaliitto.fi>: Command died with status 2:
    "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post hn11240914-l". Command output:
    Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 65533, GOT gid 67.

2) Vintage list, needing nobody-group:

# STANZA START: saukkotesti-l
# CREATED: Thu Nov 24 10:09:23 2005
saukkotesti-l:             "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-admin:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman admin saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-bounces:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman bounces saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-confirm:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman confirm saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-join:        "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman join saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-leave:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman leave saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-owner:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman owner saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-request:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-subscribe:   "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe saukkotesti-l"
saukkotesti-l-unsubscribe: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe saukkotesti-l"
# STANZA END: saukkotesti-l

With mail-gid 67 gives:

<saukkotesti-l at listserv.kuntaliitto.fi>: Command died with status 2:
    "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post saukkotesti-l". Command output:
    Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 67, GOT gid 65533.

Now, they seem exactly similar to me wrapper-wise :(

With "proper" gids both process the mail to the intended recipients

Any other clues?

Best regards
