I have a RH 7.1 box running mailman-2.0.6. It does most of the tasks
assigned to it, with the exceptoin of two...

1 - It puts messages that need approval in the approval queue, but does
not notify the list admin they need to approve them.
2 - When adding a new user through the web interface and selecting to
send the new user a welcome message, it succesfully adds the user,
however does not send the welcome message to them.

After looking through the sendmail logs and other logs, it looks like
neither of the failed messages is even making it to the MTA. The two
problems seem to be related... Anyone know if I'm missing something?

    The Mailman cron jobs?

    Still no luck with getting emails for welcomes and approvals...
    When firing the qrunner command that's in cron from shell, it appears to
    goe fine. When invking it with the -v option, ie.:

    /usr/bin/python/ -S -v /home/mailman/cron/qrunner,

    I get the following in /home/mailman/logs/errors:

    Sep 20 11:23:11 2001 qrunner(26106): # clear __builtin__._

    Sep 20 11:23:11 2001 qrunner(26106): # restore sys.stdout
    Sep 20 11:23:11 2001 qrunner(26106): # restore sys.stderr

    I get nothing in syslog, maillog, or mailq.

    I have been adding test users from the command line with the -w y arg in
    addition to through the web interface. I have been trying to follow
    what actually happens in the add_members code, but not knowing python,
    I've been getting a little lost in the code. And I'm not sure if the
    above messages are significant or just from the verbose switch...

    Cronjobs all appear to be running. I've run them all from command
    line with success too. Is there/ which of the cronjobs sends
    welcomes & which sends a message that approval is needed?
    qrunner.
