The mailman logs does not show anything about getting mail. Problems to
yahoo, comcast, gmail and other domains? In the last install all those
worked before.

Logs are attached (i am not fond of the addresses being indexed. So
Mark, if you can, please delete the attachments)

It is set for 'localhost'

Also, accroding to
http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq04.078.htp step 2:
#grep wrapper /etc/aliases
#majordomo:             "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
#test:                  "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper resend -l test
#test-request:          "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l test"

# grep mailman /etc/aliases
mailman:        root
mailman-owner:  mailman

It appears that there aren't any aliases. Step 6:
shows 2 locked files. They are master-qrunner and
master-qrunner.web.26733. These files are in /var/lib/mailman/locks
And i feel the need to say 2 domains (electrichendrix.com and
mytimewithgod.net). The list is on mytimewithgod.net and the mail server
is on electrichendrix.com.
