[Mailman-Users] I've built apache, sendmail, mailman successfully, how to make them work?

Now my mail system and Mainman are worse than before. Before, internet
email addresses and local unix user account can receive invitations
from Mailman when I do mass subscription or users (by internet email
or local unix account) subscribe on the Mailman web page.

But now the invitations can be received. I can see the `new ...' and
'deleted ...' logs in /usr/local/mailman/logs/subscriber.

The mail server (Solaris bundled sendmail 8) is still ok. I can send
LAN emails via Outlook Express in Windows.

What was I missing?

By the way, when I create a new list (not site-wide one), Mailman will
create an email address for it, but Mailman doesn't create a real
email address for the list. Do I need to create that corresponding
email address manually?

Thanks in advance.
