Installed package via X (Gnome). Version 2.1.9. Since I'm not a regular
Un*x administrator (fix some simple mail problem once a month) I tend to
like GUI over CMD ;-) 

Todd, my /usr/lib/mailman/subdir-files all have mail as GUID. Isn't that
suppose to mean mail client (Postfix)?
Silly question, is the mail wrapper the /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman
Aliases is root mail and aliases.db is mail mail

Isn't group mailman used at all?
