Those instructions assume you are running a separate Mailman instance
for each domain. Is this what you want? The more usual case is a single
instance with the restriction that list names must be globally unique.

Without seeing your Exim router and transport definitions for Mailman,
we can't guess what the problem might be.

Also, see the note at the beginning of
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node16.html>, i.e. follow
<http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html> rather than the Mailman
installation manual for Exim 4
