Status 2 is a group mismatch error. I don't know why exim didn't also
return the error message in its failure notice, but basically, the
group that exim is using to invoke the wrapper
(/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman) is not the group the wrapper is
configured to expect.

The exim group is defined in exim.conf as MM_GID if you're following
http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html#exconf - default

The expected group was defined by Mailman's configure --with-mail-gid
option - see <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node7.html>.

for a more detailed explanation.
