FAQ
Hi all.
I recently moved my mailman installation to a new server and now the lists
refuse to work. Emails to the lists enter postfix and are delivered to the
mailman service but won't be forwarded to the subscribers.
I'm pretty sure it must be a permissions problem but I ran several times
(as root and as user "list") check_perms -f and it says all is fixed.
The web interface for the archives works ok.

This is my error log:

    It appears to be permissions on
    /var/lib/mailman/lists/sottomessi/digest.mbox. Prior to Mailman
    2.1.12rc1 there was a bug in check_perms in that it didn't check
    digest.mbox files.

    This file must be in mailman's group and group writable.

    This is my error log:
