First of all I apologize of there is already ananswer to this question. I
have been googling and reading your doc for days in hopes of finding an


I was running mailman successfully for years on my server. Then this week I
cut over to a new server and hired someone to install the latest version of
mailman and migrate all my existing lists. This mostly works.


I can run /usr/lib/mailman/bin/list_lists and all my lists are displayed. I
can use the mailman admin page to list all my lists and I can edit each of
them from there.


But when I try to send email to any list, my email is sent back to me with
the following message:


<Test at tunedinweb.com>: Command died with status 1:

Can you help me find out what is wrong?
