First off, thanks in advance for any help that can be tossed my way. 



I am trying to get Mailman to work. 


Mailman is provided by my web host. I have followed their instructions, as
well as much of the Mailman FAQ and setup as I can comprehend. (Fairly new
to this stuff)



The problem: The list doesn’t send out any messages.



Anyhow, This is what happens. 


-          setup new list (HYPERLINK
"mailto:test at saskjunction.com"test at saskjunction.com just for testing, and
seems to activate fine.)

-          I can log in to the administration panel no problem and add
users, adjust settings, etc. 

-          I can send email to the list. (Don’t get a bounce or anything)
but nothing happens. I made sure the email address I was sending from was
added to the list before hand. 

-          I read the FAQ and the problem “seems” to indicate an issue with
crontabs. I checked my Cron information (I don’t know how much access I get
to this stuff, as it is mosty new to me) and I see nothing in my little
access area. I tried putting in some of the strings in the Cron area, but
still nothing. (I actually am not sure if I even input that information
correctly, I just copied and pasted off the FAQ.)



>From my lack of knowledge, it seems to have something to do with setup /
install which I doubt I have access to on a shared hosting account. My host
seemed helpful, but I think didn’t understand what I was saying. The FAQ
points to Cron or the sendmail setup, but I do not know how to even begin
checking this. 


Any tips or tricks? Where to start or to tell my host to help?



Thanks for your time.
