Are you getting the post as a subscriber or an owner notification at
the owner address?

Does your list have public archives? If not, the directory should be
empty. In any case, it contains only symlinks to things in the
archives/private/ directory.

You should have only one. Our standard install instructions tell you to
install cron/crontab.in using crontab as the mailman user. This puts
it in /var/spool/cron/mailman. RedHat rpms install a slightly
different crontab (contatining userid) in /etc/cron.d/mailman. You
want one ot the other, not both.
