How do you create the new list?  If via the command line

     /usr/sbin/newlist  LISTNAME

then you need a first parameter

     /usr/sbin/newlist -e DOMAIN LISTNAME

for example,

     /usr/sbin/newlist -e dom2.com  mynewlist


     /usr/sbin/newlist -h

to get the help information for the newlist command.
