Hello there,

i'm relativ new to Mailman.
Now I've got following Software working
Apache + Mailman 2.1.13 + Postfix on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

# Sample configuration for Debian mailman with Apache

# We can find mailman here:
#ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
# And the public archives:
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
# Logos:
Alias /images/mailman/ /usr/share/images/mailman/

# Use this if you don't want the "cgi-bin" component in your URL:
# In case you want to access mailman through a shorter URL you should enable
# this:
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
# In this case you need to set the DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN in
# /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py to http://%s/mailman/ for the cookie
# authentication code to work.  Note that you need to change the base
# URL for all the already-created lists as well.

<Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/>
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
<Directory /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymlinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
<Directory /usr/share/images/mailman/>
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

Now my Problem is the following:
After a user subscribes to a mailinglist and opens the confirmation link and
clicks the confirmation button hes got redirected to an "Enter confirmation
cookie"-Page. But after entering the confirmation cookie nothing happens,
the same page is shown again.

Other ActionButtons also don't work.

By the way I redirect all Requests on Port 80 to 443. So all actions happens
over https. I hope that's no problem...
