Set up Mailman-Postfix integration per

However, I don't understand why you are getting the permissions denied
with what you have. Even 'nobody' should be able to execute
/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman. If your aliases are in
/etc/aliases.db and that file is owned by root, Postfix should run the
pipe as the default_privs user, so it should work as is.

Are all the directories in the path /usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman o+x?
