Dear Mark,

Thanks for your reply. But after I read this article at
http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2004-June/037514.html, I do not
understand very well about this section. I can't find /etc/sudoers fiels in my

4. We need permission for apache and mailman to run our script from step 1.
In the /etc/sudoers file (use the command /usr/sbin/visudo) we need two
apache ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/local/sbin/mailman.aliases
mailman ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/local/sbin/mailman.aliases

And I still get userunkonw as bounced back mail.

I created for mailman aliases file like this : for example I created list named
"test" and members in this list are test1 at server.com and test2 at server.com

So, I created as:

test       test1 test2

Is that right?

I can use mailman adimn and create new lists from web interface.
