After looking at your alias question below I realize that -- no, it
was not going through mailman (see below)

I did not realize it -- but I did. Apparently the ISP set it up to
send mailman to root -- and -- later I sent root to my address on the
local servers local and then directed my email address to the gmail

OK, things are normal, a new set of problems have arrived.... :-)
When I fixed the mailman alias ie. set it to mailman -- the mail
started to arrive in the mailman spool folder. Of course it just sits
there instead of being processed so I have to go chase that problem
down now.... At least I am seeing a trail of where it stops instead
of just nothing happening......
I set the mailman alias to "mailman: mailman". Is that correct?
When I set up mailman, it automatically set the DEFAULT_NNTP_HOST,
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and DEFAULT_URL_HOST -- all to
"fos.<my.domain>.com" which is the 'hostname/domainname' of my server
hardware. I changed the email to "<my.domain>.com" and the URL_host
to "lists.<my.domain>.com" (the vhost.d config file server name) and
left the NNTP_HOST the way it was. Should I have left all settings at
"fos.<my.domain>.com" like mailman suggested?

I agree. I will get back to you if I hit another snag in the instalation saga.
Thanks for your help
