[Mailman-Users] Mailman error: Forbidden: You don't have permission to access /pipermail/grads/ on this server

I'm testing a new installation of postfix and mailman on a remote
server (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, 64-bit) with two active virtual hosts. Each
host is accessed via a switch to https (TLS). I installed mailman
(and postfix) via my package manager.
I've established four lists, two for each server, and I can send and
receive mail successfully so far.
However, I, as a list user, cannot get access to the archives for a
list. When I try to look at the archives through the link on the
Welcome message I get the following:
You don't have permission to access /pipermail/grads/ on this server.
I tried changing the example line in the mailman.conf file from:
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
ScriptAlias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
but that didn't change anything so I changed it back.
I have searched this list for "pipermail" but see no similar problem.
I'm sure I've missed a note somewhere but I'm not sure how to proceed.
The mailman docs talk about permissions and the mailman user but
Ubuntu installs all mailman files with root:list ownership which seems
to work for all else. All the directories under /var/lib/mailman have
drwxrwsr-x 4 root list
Thanks for your help.
