You are installing a Debian package. The people on this list are most
familiar with installation of GNU Mailman from our source distribution.

You might get better answers from Debian support resources.

However, the instructions at http://www.debianhelp.co.uk/mailman.htm
say "Mailman will integrate itself into your webserver if you're
running Apache or Apache2". This implies that the package creates a
file included in the apache configuration. Perhaps something like
/etc/httpd/conf.d/mailman. What's in that file? And, have you reloaded
or restarted httpd since you installed Mailman.

Please reply on the list. Every time you reply off list to me, the
thread gets broken in the archive which makes it that much harder for
the next person to find any resolution.
