Let me add that the main mailman messages are going through fine, and I 
see those sent in the exim logs, it is just these owner posts that don't 
show up in the logs.  Yes, it appears that exim is configured correctly, 
and like I said, the mail is getting to mailman to be posted to the 
owner fine, it's mailman that doesn't seem to be able to handle it.
