I ask if this is mailman or postfix because I was trying to move the
mail lists to a new server, so I have "handled" the mailman files,
but never touched the Postfix files. Is this a file permissions issue?
Yes :-). Since groups are specified with a name which is them mapped to
a number, is that number the same? I've seen new versions of an OS come
with different /etc/group files. I assume that tcwaters is not the group
that you expected to be there. (See the FAQ also, you'll probably need to
either change the group tcwaters to be called mailman and reset all the
file groups or rebuild mailman on that new system.)
