Something else.  In the system alias file I have:

LISTNAME-help: bryan, dennis at foo.com, matt at bar.com

The Mailman List Owner points to that.  I get the messages, but Dennis and Matt do not.

That's just what I'm getting.  No errors, it appears to deliver to the system alias but the alias never gets expanded.  The system alias otherwise works as expected, it's something specific to the MM -owner mail.
