	Seems like this topic comes often in the newgroup, but since I could 
not find an answer to my particular problem, I figure out I could -also- 
send a request about this problem.

	So I am trying to install mailman, I read and followed instructions from:


	since I have a running postfix installation (gentoo box), I just modify 
the few main.cf options needed, basically:
owner_request_special = no
alias_maps = hash:/etc/mail/aliases,

	I did generate the aliases using genalias (under root), and then chmod 
to mailman:

$ ls -al /usr/local/mailman/data
-rw-rw----   1 mailman mailman   357 Oct  3 16:22 aliases
-rw-r-----   1 mailman mailman 49152 Oct  3 16:22 aliases.db

	And finally here is the /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py I am 
using. It is attached to this email.

Does anyone knows what is going on ? Is there a way to make mailman more 
verbose on why this mailing list is 'illegal'.

Thanks a bunch,
