Back in September I asked some questions about problems I was having
getting Mailman running on the virtual server supplied by my ISP.
Configuration was complicated by the fact that I do not have full
admin access to the server.

with one exception.

I see that in the ALIASES file there are a series of entries relating
to the test list but not the other lists created via the web
interface. However, I was advised that the mailer used by the ISP
does not require aliases.
The mailer at the ISP is Exim 4.43.
If I can advise the ISP tech guys on the necessary fix then that
would probably speed up a fix so any advice gratefully received.
Equally, I'd be pleased to apply a fix myself provided it does not
require root access.
Thanks in advance.
