I have compiled my mailman.mc as sendmail.cf and put it in the "working dir". How does mailman create the sendmail users or does it use an alias for all of the lists?

Did you add the list aliases to the Sendmail alias file?

If you did, did you run newaliases?

I can't recall if you need to restart Sendmail for the new aliases to
take effect, but I always do, so did you restart Sendmail?
