I have a problem sending emails to and from mailman lists. I think the
problem is with the router setting, or perhaps with mailman not
creating aliases for the lists.

Mailman is installed and its website loads fine. I can manage, add
lists, and do other admin tasks
However, when I try to send an email to test at lists.host.org I get an error.
If I send an email to user at lists.hosts.org email works fine. I can
send and receive emails as a user, but not as a list.

Is there a log that I can use/monitor to trouble shoot this?

This is my router setting:

begin routers

mailman_router:
driver = accept
domains = +mm_domains
require_files = MM_LISTCHK
local_part_suffix_optional
local_part_suffix = -admin : \
-bounces : -bounces+* : \
-confirm : -confirm+* : \
-join : -leave : \
-owner : -request : \
-subscribe : -unsubscribe
transport = mailman_transport

    Aliases (for lists) aren't always needed.

    what are the dns records (particularly mx records) against
    "lists.host.org".

    your exim logs, and your mailman logs may be a good starting point.
    This is my router setting:

    begin routers

    mailman_router:
    driver = accept
    domains = +mm_domains
    require_files = MM_LISTCHK
    local_part_suffix_optional
    local_part_suffix = -admin : \
    -bounces : -bounces+* : \
    -confirm : -confirm+* : \
    -join : -leave : \
    -owner : -request : \
    -subscribe : -unsubscribe
    transport = mailman_transport
    is there a transport set-up too?

    Have you defined mm_domains and MM_LISTCHK?

    Exim logs and other Exim tools like 'exim -bt'

    This is my router setting:

    begin routers

    mailman_router:
    driver = accept
    domains = +mm_domains
    require_files = MM_LISTCHK
    local_part_suffix_optional
    local_part_suffix = -admin : \
    -bounces : -bounces+* : \
    -confirm : -confirm+* : \
    -join : -leave : \
    -owner : -request : \
    -subscribe : -unsubscribe
    transport = mailman_transport

    And your mailman_transport and other definitions? See
