well, after not having gotten any reply from the list for... "too long" i
mailed somebody who had this problem too, and didn't get a reply (he posted
the problem in may 2002 i think it was)
and he guided me through it, problem was:
using tcpserv i had to allow my ip (not 127.0.0 but my "global" ip) to
relay, and as you said it is in the instructions.. but having the
instrucions more readable for others would be a great help and help a *LOT*
i think (especially the README.QMAIL can be a pain too often as it doesn't
help at all, imho)
anyway, it's fixed, and settled, after configuring it properly (with the
appropriate gid's and uid's) and entering my boxes "external" ip into
tcp.smtp it worked without a problem (owh, i almost forgot to add: don't
forget the cron entries too ofc ;-))
thanks for your reply anyway though Tom!

Check to make sure that your host is allowed to forward (read the
on setting up mailman with qmail). Chances are this is your problem

right, i'm having some problems with qmail and mailman
i've set up mailman, and it seems to work fine.
i log in to the administrative interface, and subscribe some users
(mail-addresses) and it sends out the information with out a problem (if i
want it to)
well, now comes my problem though:
i've created the alias files (/var/mailman is the home dir, and info is the
listname) in /var/qmail/alias (yes, that is the alias homedir)
preline /var/mailman/mail/wrapper post info
preline /var/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner info
preline /var/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd info
but if i send a mail to info at mydomain.com then it won't forward them
furthermore my mm_cfg.py contains:
SMTPHOST = 'localhost'
SMTPPORT = 25
MTA_ALIASES_STYLE = 'qmail'
what am i doing wrong?
help would be greatly appreciated!!
