What version of Apache are you running?

What other steps have you taken to configure your Apache server to be  
an HTTPS server? For instance VitualHost directives and such or are  
you running separate HTTP and HTTPS server instances?

What exactly is the error response you say you are getting?

This sound more like an Apache configuration problem rather than a  
Mailman problem. have you checked out the documentation available here:
