[Mailman-Users] Negligent admin needs help

Hi all.

The problem with great software is that one becomes use to it just working...

Alas, I've been negligent.  Per some date stamps, apparently about 2 weeks
ago my /usr/local filesystem filled up - causing mailman
(/usr/local/mailman) some grief.  Last night I moved /usr/local/mailman to
/var/mailman, created a symbolic link, and now have 40X more space.  I
rather figured that would do the trick, but alas, I apparently have
another problem.

Now (and I don't think its related to the filesystem move), I'm seeing
this in my smtp-failure log:

I played with this for about 3 hours last night without success so now
turn to this list.

This is a Gentoo system, running 2.6.16-hardened, Postfix (and thats
working - we are using it to send this message and gather replies), and
Mailman 2.1.9_rc1.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Kevin
