I hop into this thread as this is of interest to me, too.

Middleman is a channel daemon for Sun Java System Messaging Server (you
may know it as iPlanet Messaging Server or PMDF). I wrote middleman to
integrate Mailman with SJSMS as there was now thorough solution
available. It's still a work in progress, but works for us at the
University of Turku.

Now, there was a bug in middleman and I've asked Rolf to send me some
debugging info to find where the problem is. Until then there's nothing
to do but speculate. But I doubt the problem is in Mailman, although
Rolf's description of the problem seems very odd, I must say.

If anyone is interested in the integration, you may ask me off list if
you wish.
