error 2

I am using sendmail and the error hints that the program occurs because it
is not configured to send to a program, however it works fine when I send
messages to eaacustomers at ernestallen.com and that send to a program.
below are the entries in my aliases file:

## eaacustomers mailing list
## created: 19-Mar-2000 mailman
eaacustomers: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post eaacustomers"
eaacustomers-admin: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner
eaacustomers"
eaacustomers-request: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd eaacustomers"
owner-eaacustomers: eaacustomers-admin
eaacustomers-owner: eaacustomers-admin

the error message in the maillog is:

When I run check_perms -f it says that there are no problems. GID 12 is the
mail group and GID 2 is daemon

Any ideas?
