[Mailman-Users] the "shunt" mail queue

>I sent a message to a mailman list on my server.  The message was not delivered.   At first, I got a mesage indicating that sendmail was not running with group=mailman.  So I stopped and started sendmail with group=mailman.  This allowed the mail to get as far as the "in" queue but could go no farther.  Permission errors during processing clued me into the idea of stopping and re-starting sendmail with user=mailman and group=mailman.  Now, I see no error messages, but the notes I post to the list are ending up in the "shunt" queue. 

Actually, running from the group that the wrapper expects should be
sufficient. The fact that it wasn't indicates you still have
permission problems in your Mailman hierarchy. Run


as root. If there are errors, run

bin/check_perms -f

until they're gone.
