[Mailman-Users] Fwd: Problem with non-digest mode

ok I've carried out some more investigation into this.  the 3 emails i
set up to test all forwarded to my google mail account.

I have now set up one of them as a seperate pop3 address one as a
forward to that address and one as a forward to my google mail

The pop3 one receives no problem the forward to that address again no
problem the one that forwards to google message never arrives.

So i added my google mail account to the list.

And again no mail comes through.

Now my registration for the Mailman-users list comes into my google
mail no problem so there is something to do with the set up of my mail
man that won't let it send to google.

Anybody else have this problem, i could go ahead and launch but the
problem is i know that at least 2 of the people who will be on the
final list use google mail.

That looks right to me.

The sending of digests is handled by the senddigests script in the
cron directory, I am not sure exactly how it sends things but I don't
think it uses the outgoing qrunner. I could be mistaken on that and I
am sure one of the more knowledgeable members will correct me if I am wrong.

Have you tried a restart of mailman? The outgoing process is running
but that does not necessarily mean that it is "awake" and able to
process anything.

To troubleshoot further, we will need more info.

Have you examined the qrunner, post, vette, smtp, and error logs? On
your system they should be located in /var/mailman/logs

If the posts are getting to your MTA, you will need to look at its
logs to see if you can find anything there.
