Your aliases file looks correct. I'm not sure what you mean by
"manual." Sendmail normally runs as background daemons.

Check that all your Mailman qrunners are running.

If you can send mail to and from a local non-Mailman account, then
your sendmail installation is OK. Important thing is to configure
sendmail properly and test it first. You should have sendmail checked
out and running in daemon mode before trying to integrate it with
Try sending mail to the -owner account (point-owner) and see if it
gets sent to the list administrator addresses. That bypasses any
options in the Mailman configuration that apply to list postings. Once
that is working try sending a message to your list address.
Read your logs. Sendmail shows the send to Mailman (example below,
includes demime filter in the pipe)

That says that the message went to Mailman. Go to the Mailman logs
and check them. If Mailman is not sending out messages to list
addresses, the logs generally tell you why it isn't.
