FAQ
Okay,

Third post is the charm.... (sorry for the previous spam...)

System Specs:

Enterprise 250
Solaris 7
256 MB Ram
Python 1.5.1
Mailman 1.0rc3

Quick Problem Description:

A message is sent to an alias "cic at lasierra.edu". This alias
points the message to the user cic and the mailing list "test". When a
message is sent to this alias, it gets caught by our postmaster returning
the message with a "unknown mailer error 2" and does not deliver it to
either the list or the user cic. (No error messages are logged in any of
mailman's log files...)

A message sent to the test at lasierra.edu list is recieved fine and
there are no error messages at all (in mailman logs, console of our system
log files).


Solutions previously tried and failed:

The solution given in the INSTALL guide for mailman only results
in our server wanting:

GID 250 when it is configured with GID 1
*GID 1 when it is configured with GID 250
GID 1 when it is configured with GID 6
GID 1 when it is configured with GID 110

* This message also occurs when the --with-mail-gid is not used at
configure time.

The information regarding sendmail and smrsh:

We are currently not running smrsh.



Long Text of problem:

Posts sent to my mailing lists by way of a alias in the /etc/mail/aliases
file, return the error

Alias as seen in file:

cic: cic,test

Error message:

Jul 12 14:33:07 inet Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec script.
WANTED gid 1, GOT gid 250. (Reconfigure to take 250?)

in my /var/adm/messages logfile and print on the console.

I get a return email with the following information in it:
