At this point, sendmail (right?) has dispatched the message sent to
my_list at pop3.olypen.com, or perhaps my_list at olypen.com, to the
mailmain handler.
Is '/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman' the proper address?

Mailman has generated a response, and attempted to send it to
wtallman at olypen.com, but it was rejected by the remote SMTP server.
The SMTP server reported 'User unknown'. Check the logs on
smtp.olypen.com, if you can, for more information about this.

The qrunners each, more or less, have their own logs. the main qrunner
log only records what you see; when they started, when they failed,
when they restarted.

See my comments above.

Mailman *seems* to be working, but I might be missing something. If
nothing else, I don't know that 'my_list at ...' should be sending to the
mailman list.
