Yes that is what I was referring to. I have this sorted out now but I don't understand it completely. There are actually 2 servers involved here. The one you helped with originally (and on which that article was based) was RHEL 7 and that is where I used 'nobody' to get it working. This one is CentOS 7 which I thought was the same but obviously it is slightly different. So I did indeed change it to 'mailman' and now it works. Thanks again.
