If Mailman's error log is empty, there are other issues with
permissions. Where are you looking? Mailman's logs are in their own
directory; where depends on the installation, but that directory
should contain most of the logs 'bounce', 'error', 'fromusenet',
'locks', 'mischief', 'post', 'qrunner', 'smtp', 'smtp-failure',
'subscribe' and 'vette'. In a new installation, some of these won't
exist as they have never been written, but at least 'post', 'qrunner',
'smtp' and 'subscribe' should be there and non-empty in any
installation with working lists.

If you are not seeing these logs with current content, you are not
looking in the correct directory.

W e neen the error and traceback information from the error log to help
diagnose your problem.
