[Mailman-Users] Debian, Exim4, GID, desperated...

I'm running a Debian-Sarge-Testing Server with Mailman 2.1.9-7, exim4 4.63-17. 
I think I've consulted every README, FAQ and internetsite available, but 
couldn't get mailman to work.

I copied the Exim4 conf files from README.Exim4.Debian.

The first problem was piping. I resolved it by creating a file 
conf.d/main/000_localmacros as indicated here: 


Now I get complaints like this:
"Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail
wrapper script to be executed as group "daemon", but
the system's mail server executed the mail script as
group "Debian-exim"...."

The problem doesn't change when I change the line
MAILMAN_GROUP=daemon to anything like mailman, Debian-exim or list.

I also changed
MTA = 'postfix' to MTA = None, but I think this shouldn't have effect on this 

What else can I tell you?
