[Mailman-Users] newlist created - no e-mail

After creation of the newlist mailman, I was told that the owner (me) was
being sent e-mail to inform that owner.

The e-mail never showed up.

So, as a test, I did the simple e-mail to myself by talking directly to exim
to send a test mail, just like I did when I initially installed exim.

That e-mail showed up in /var/mail.  Exim reported that vidiot at vidiot.com
was really a local user, me (the /etc/aliases file has an entry for vidiot
to go to brown), and that it was deliverd locally.

Don't know what newlist does when it sends e-mail, but it didn't work.
