Hi,

I tried to run mailman 2.1.9 with postfix 2.0.16 on Alpha TRU64 UNIX 5.1A.
Unfortunately, when I tried to subscribe to my test conference, I got this errors to smtp-failure file:

...
Feb 12 16:57:08 2008 (250559) delivery to root[at]t2.pvt.cz failed with code -1: (5, 'Addres family was not recognized or address length was invalid.')

...

In Postfix maillog subscriptions looks like "send":

...

When I tried mailman with sendmail, result was the same (the same error messages in smtp-failure file).

Sending and receiving e-mails to/from users on this server (t2.pvt.cz) works properly.

I tried to find in conferences error message "Addres family was not recognized or address length was invalid." with "mailman", but withouth usable result.

What I doing wrong, have you any tips, please?

    These errors are reported from the outgoing MTA to Mailman when Mailman
    tries to send a message (in this case to root[at]t2.pvt.cz).

    In Postfix maillog subscriptions looks like "send":

    ...

    These log entries are the delivery of posts to Mailman and represent
    sucessfull deliveries despite the warnings.

    When I tried mailman with sendmail, result was the same (the same error messages in smtp-failure file).

    Which indicates that the outgoing MTA Mailman is talking to is neither
    sendmail nor Postfix.

    Sending and receiving e-mails to/from users on this server (t2.pvt.cz) works properly.

    I tried to find in conferences error message "Addres family was not recognized or address length was invalid." with "mailman", but withouth usable result.
    It is not a Mailman message. It comes from the MTA.

    Have you redefined SMTPHOST and/or SMTPPORT in mm_cfg.py. If not,
    Mailman is trying to send via SMTP to 'localhost' port 25. What happens
    if you 'telnet localhost 25'? What MTA answers?
