Thanks for the explanation of the circumstances. I got a tip from
another forum on the internet. It suggested to try to replace Exim4 with
Postfix because it is claimed not to have piping disabled and that it is
tightly compatible with Mailman. I post this here in case someone
googles this lists archives.
