It comes from PID 56963 which looks like a Postfix 'local' delivery agent instance. I.e., it's in your Postfix aliases. I don't know how these aliases are generated in your setup, but assuming you have Mailman's Postfix integration, that path comes from the WRAPPER_DIR setting in Mailman/Defaults.py. That in turn is based on EXEC_PREFIX which is often the same as PREFIX. These things are set from options to configure when Mailman is configured. Did you start your installation by running configure? If so, what is the configure command from config.log, is there a --prefix= option or a --exec-prefix= option - the defaults for these are --prefix=/usr/local/mailman and --exec-prefix=(the prefix value). -- Mark Sapiro <m...@msapiro.net> The highway is for gamblers, San Francisco Bay Area, California better use your sense - B.
