That file only exists for Mailman 2.0.x.

Did you install Mailman 2.0.x?  If so, why?

Assuming you installed something more recent (like 2.1.9, which is 
the current version), then this program won't exist and any leftover 
aliases you may have from a previous 2.0.x installation won't work 
correctly.  In that case, the aliases need to be updated to work 
correctly with Mailman 2.1.x, as detailed in the instructions.

I think you've probably got some sort of disconnect between your 
aliases and the program that was installed, but exactly why you have 
this situation is not clear.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
