Hi all.
I recently moved my mailman installation to a new server and now the lists
refuse to work. Emails to the lists enter postfix and are delivered to the
mailman service but won't be forwarded to the subscribers.
I'm pretty sure it must be a permissions problem but I ran several times
(as root and as user "list") check_perms -f and it says all is fixed.
The web interface for the archives works ok.

This is my error log:
