FAQ
I have this same problem. -admin gives me bounces, but -owner works.

FreeBSD 4.6.2
Sendmail 8.12.3p2
Mailman 2.1.1 w/ htDig

Thanks,
Will

Tell me what you get when you do a:
~mailman/bin/list_members mailman
I get the address that is listed for the administrator of the mailman
list.
Also what happens if you take a message and save it to a file called
test.eml and then feed it to your test list's admin:
su mailman
cat test.eml |/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin test

If this works then the problem is in the aliases file (or postfix's
interpretation of the alias).
This resulted in the same sort of bounce notification message as
before. So I guess the aliases are OK. Where else could the problem
be? If this isn't happening on anyone else's system, it must be a
problem with the way I upgraded this server or something. But again,
it also seems to be happening on another server I didn't upgrade.

Thanks again for helping to get to the bottom of this,

Greg

It seems strange that this is happening on two different servers...
perhaps something went wrong in upgrading them from 2.0 that isn't
true of
the servers you're looking at, where you did a cleaner upgrade? I
don't
know what might be wrong here... why are these messages being

bounces?
