Please help me resolve what I hope is fairly simple permissions error.
If need be,  I can restore the VM to a state prior to the noted file


Goal:  Migrate from Mac OSX.4.11 to Ubuntu 9.04 (on VMware).



    Build Ubuntu server with Postfix, Amavisd, Spammassasin, & Mailman. 

    Rsync files over with the following commands.  Did not use option a
because mailman/list owner had different names & numerical IDs.


    sudo rsync -rlptDvz /var/mailman/lists
root at 209.XXX.XXX.XX:/var/lib/mailman/
