Yes, I suppose I was a little slow with the details. I sent it in a 
hurry from work. Sorry.

Ok. My system is a Fedora 7 system. The version of mailman is 
mailman-2.1.9-5.1. I installed the RPM. I have run bin/check_perms -f as 
root. It reported errors the first time and none thereafter. I did set 
the aliases appropriately. I can send messages to the lists by cat'ing 
the message into the alias. I did create the site-wide mailman list. I 
believe I followed the directions, although I have a suspicion that this 
list is where the problem lies.

I have full access on this system, and yes, I have searched the mailman 
logs for a hint. The only info I see if in the /var/log/mailman/vette 
file and is really no more helpful than the message in the subject line:

Dec 30 12:00:02 2007 (3267) Mailman post from root at thepenguin.org held, 
message-id=<20071230170001.918BD29B00B5 at mail>: Post by non-member to a
