[Mailman-Users] RESOLUTION: Mailman/Qmail/Plesk Problem

Prequalification: This may not work for everyone.  What I suspected is
that something in the mailman config was corrupted, or when the server
backups were restored, something was configured for the old server,
and was therefore different with the new one.  However, I noticed in
my research on this problem that there were a number of individuals
with strange issues like this, so hopefully this helps someone.

What I did:
Get a fresh copy of mailman (stock version), and compiled it, with the
expected mail gid and cgi gid used in this installation.  I then
installed it into a different working directory (/usr/local/mailman),
and copied the list configs and archives into this directory space.
Finally, I moved the plesk installation (/usr/lib/mailman) to a
different name and symlinked /usr/local/mailman to /usr/lib/mailman.

Everything is working fine now, including the plesk control panel.

So, at this point, I'm not sure whether plesk's version modifies
anything in mailman, or if they just have a front-end that manipulates
things somehow, but since it's [plesk] compiled PHP code, I won't find
out that way. But the customer is very happy, and at the moment,
that's all I am worried about... (And finally getting some sleep)

Subject: [Mailman-Users] Mailman/Qmail/Plesk Problem


I've got another problem with Qmail/Plesk/Mailman (same customer,
rebuilt server).  Plesk is 7.5.4 reloaded.

Mail delivered fails with "need GID 110 got 101" error.  I set up the
brute-force wrapper to deliver with GID 110, and set the permissions
correctly for it to work.  Now, I'm getting the following (broken up
into multiple lines for courtesy):

qmail: 1157518628.995172 delivery 726: success:

I'm about ready to pull my hair out.  I even added the popuser user to
the mailman group in /etc/passwd.

So, that being said, are there any ideas out there?  I have been
messing with this for a week, and have not come up with anything else
to do.
