FAQ
I'm trying to get mailman ver 1.1 to work on my system. Details are:

Corel Linux (debian i386)
Exim version 2.05
MailMan version 1.1

The mail system seems to be working properly (local users can send and
receive mail). Mailman subscriptions seem to work ok also, when I
subscribed myself from a mail acount on another system and domain, I got
the welcome message.

Problem is when I try to post a message to the list I get the following
error:

ktgtest at listserv.knosysinc.com:
generated |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post ktgtest:
Child process of address_pipe transport returned 2 from command:
/home/mailman/mail/wrapper

So it appears that exim doesn't like the fact that wrapper is returing a
2 when it executes. Also, wrapper doesn't appear to be doing anything
that I can find (although I'm not sure where it puts the message).

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    How have you confiugred Exim for Mailman? Have you used the
    stanzas listed at exim.org?

    Wrapper is a shell that hands off to any of a number of other
    scripts that actuially do the work. Anything interesting in
    /var/lib/mailman/logs?

    I figured out my problem: the GID that mailman was configured for did not
    match the GID that exim was running the wrapper script from.

    Obviously I'm a bozo but I imagine there are enough other bozos out there
    that this should probably be in the FAQ. The error was not easy to trace
    down because other than what I described below, the only other place it is
    reported is in syslog mail.error.

    Thanks for the help.
