hi,
I run freeBSD 4.9 Postfix 2.0.16 and mailman 2.1.14

When I test by sending this email: ff-subscribe at virtualdomain.com

I get:
<ff-subscribe at virtualdomain.com>: Command died with status 2:
"/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe ff". Command output: Group
mismatch error. Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be executed as
group "nobody", but the system's mail server executed the mail script as
group "mailman". Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as group
"nobody", or re-run configure, providing the command line option
`--with-mail-gid=mailman'

I re run mailman port, with make --with-mail-gid=mailman but I have the same
result.

when I do a "make options":

* MM_USERNAME [mailman]
The username of the Mailman user
* MM_USERID [92]
The user ID of the Mailman user
It is recommended that you do not change this option.
* MM_GROUPNAME [mailman]
The group to which the Mailman user will belong
* MM_GROUPID [92]
The group ID for the Mailman user
It is recommended that you do not change this option.
* MM_DIR [mailman]
Mailman will be installed in ${PREFIX}/${MM_DIR}
* MAIL_GID [mailnull]
----------------------------------------------------
MTA | MAIL_GID | Submitted by
Exim3 | nobody (65534) | <wjv at FreeBSD.org>
Exim4 | mail (6) | <wjv at FreeBSD.org>
Postfix | mailman | <vivek at khera.org>
Qmail | ??? |
----------------------------------------------------
NOTE: for Postfix, the group may need to be 'nobody' if you are not
using the Mailman integration for generating the postfix virtual and
aliases files.
* CGI_GID [www]
The group name or id under which your web server executes CGI scripts
By default, this port works with the current port of Apache2. If your
WWW server executes CGI scripts under a different GID, you'll have to
set this at build time.
* IMGDIR [www/icons]
Icon images will be installed in ${PREFIX}/${IMGDIR}
* WITH_CHINESE [undefined]
Define to include support for Chinese mailing lists
* WITH_HTDIG [undefined]
Define to include the htdig integration patches.

    I always do it this way:
    make distclean, then *configure* with the above, then make.

    Check your /etc/exim/configure where directors are called out. You can run
    exim in debug mode by typing ./exim -d9 -bd, and try sending emails to your
    list, you will catch the error, my error was in my director, I changed
    "guest" to "daemon" and was all set. You shouldn't have to recompile every
    time, even though alot of people are saying that. Create logs with the
    debugger of your MTA, logs are your friend.
