Hi,

I have installed Mailman 1.0 on a SuSE 6.2 System running sendmail 8.9.3.
There hasn't been any problems during installation.
I was able to create a new list and configure it (The name is 'ieg').

When I send a message to the list, it is archived but isn't delivered
to the members.

All it says in the logs is 'Data format error' and I don't get any
response, not even the list owner gets an error message.

Would be great if somebody with a better understanding of mail delivery
could help. I'm not even sure if this a Mailman problem though it's
first I encounter such problems.

Thanks.

Uwe

Here is the important part from the log file (line withs **** are my comments):

**** I guess this is my mail to the list

**** Ups, it didn't work, why?
Sep 23 17:03:05 gehtnix sendmail[17503]: RAA17499: RAA17503: DSN: Data format error

**** I guess this is the acknowledgement to the sender (me)

**** Fails again
Sep 23 17:03:06 gehtnix sendmail[17498]: RAA17493: RAA17498: DSN: Data format error
