As I said later, that is a special name set up by the ISP for just
this type situation.

Only mailman is trying to use that name.

effected? As I demonstrated, when using the 'mail' command, everything is fine.

There is no MTA setting that would effect mailman and nothing else
that I can find? Any suggestions?

Keep in mind this was a working system that started giving me trouble
after a restore.
