Hello Mailman Users,

Got a quick question that's been causing me trouble...

I've gott Mailman installed as UID:110 and GID:110
I've set the cgi's to run as nobody and have had a flawless system.

I switched a list from one server to another server and now I find I'm
running into problems. The switch had some troubles but nothing major and
I was able to successfully access archives etc.

But now I'm getting the following error.

Jul 12 14:09:21 inet Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script. WANTED
gid 1, GOT gid 250. (Reconfigure to take 250?)

I've attempted to follow the directions given in the INSTALL file but what
keeps on happening is when I reconfigure for 250 it wants 1 and when I
configure it for 1 it wants 250. Basically anything I configure it for it
wants the exact opposite or defaults to 1.

Does anybody have any ideas? (or can you point me to the glaring error I


(looking dazed and a little confused)

BTW I've included the postmaster message I recieve back from the list...
