Because the cron is run by 'mailman' so the output is mailed to
'mailman' which is delivered to the list. If you want it to go
elsewhere, put

MAILTO=user at example.com

or whatever address you want at the beginning of Mailman's crontab.

Is the 'mailman' user in the 'mailman' group?

Are permissions on /usr/home/mailman/lists/spam-l drwxrwsr-x and group

Are permissions on /usr/home/mailman/lists/spam-l/config.pck -rw-rw----
and group mailman?

Did you run bin/check_perms?
