FAQ
Whenever I send to a list, I get no error messages back as a reply nor do I
find anything in the mailman error logs. Mailman is installed in
/home/mailman on a RedHat 6.2 system. Anyone have any clues? Thanks in
advance.

Here's some info on the problem (PS ignore time differences between lastcomm
and maillog, I had to send twice to grab the info from the end of the logs
since they fill so quickly):

/etc/sendmail.cf:
O DefaultUser=8:12

    Have you checked root's email for error messages? Have you run "new aliases"?

    Yep, no mail to root. Already ran "newaliases". Still no mail. I can run
    wrapper myself as mail (by doing a superuser to mail) and wrapper runs and
    waits for input, but I am unsure what data to send it to check and make sure
    it is working properly.

    Redirected my mail.debug to a seperate file so I could find it in my
    neverending mail logs. Here is the line which gets generated when I send
    mail to a list:

    Feb 3 21:23:53 stunix sendmail[14493]: VAA14492:
    to="|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post all_campus", delay�:00:00,
    xdelay�:00:00, mailer=prog, stat=Sent


    Any clues? Thanks.

    did you do a symlink for the mailman's wrapper?
    examples:-

    ln -sn /home/mailman/mail/wrapper /etc/smrsh/wrapper

    then, restart sendmail

    rgds,
