	Mailman doesn't use Maildir for message input.  It only uses it 
for message storage, as an alternative to 7th edition mbox format.

	This may not have been obvious from the documentation, and we 
should work to correct that.

	You'll need to have "getmail" feed the incoming messages directly 
to Mailman, or feed them to the local MTA (postfix, sendmail, 
whatever), which is then configured to feed them to Mailman.

	How you do this is going to be specific to "getmail" and is not 
something we can help you with.
