[Mailman-Users] Mail Processing Problem?

I'll give that a try. In the mean time maybe it is not what I thought
based on your explanation. The specific error from my ISP complains
about a missing DNS entry for RCPT TO. How do I set mailman to place
the correct RCPT TO information in the headers for my SMTP server. I
tried setting:

REPLY_TO_ADDRESS = '<acceptable host/domain>'

It seems that is not what it is using for the RCPT TO.

Thanks again.

One thing you can try is to create a new test list and see if that
works. Then at least, you will have a better idea if there is some
issue with mailman or if it has specifically to do with the restored

That said, here's what's supposeed to happen when you mail

The mail is piped to "|/path/to/mailman/mail/mailman request

It is processed by the scripts/request script and the results are sent
to the From: address of the original mail with the subject "The
results of your email commands". This message is sent from and with
envelope from listname-bounces at ...

That message is either delivered to the original sender (you) or it
bounces in which case the bounce is sent to the listname-bounces
address. The domain in the from/sender of the reply is the host_name
attribute of the list which should not be 'localhost'
