FAQ
Thank you very much for your answer, it start working
properly when I had defined SMTPHOST and SMTPPORT in
mm_cfg.py how you adviced (SMTPHOST='t2.pvt.cz',
SMTPPORT='25').

Have a nice day.

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:
...

'Addres family was not recognized or address length was invalid.'),
msgid: <mailman.292.1202831704.250529.mailman[at]t2.pvt.cz>

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?
