Patrick gave a good hint, but with respect to the CGI wrappers and

For the mail wrapper, run the command

path/to/mail/mailman post

The wrapper will check the invoking GID before the list so the absence
of the list in the command is OK. The output should tell you what
group(s) is/are expected. If it complains about the missing list arg,
you ran it as one of the expected groups.
