Error installing mailman with exim

2002-06-14 Thread Grégoire Cachet
hello

I try to configure mailman on my gateway for internet, using the exim mail
server

My system is debian woody

I installed exim, and just changed the configuration in order to relay
my own computer on the local network.

Then I installed mailman and created a new list typing :

# newlist test

It asked me to add some lines in the aliases file. I added in
/etc/aliases :

## test mailing list
## created: 12-Jun-2002 root
test:|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post test
test-admin:  |/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner test
test-request:|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test
test-owner:  test-admin

I received a confirmation email for the new list test


However, if I try to subscribe sending a mail to
[EMAIL PROTECTED], it didn't work.

I can't send messages to test-admin, test, test-owner either.

there are errors in exim's logs :

2002-06-13 18:13:32 17IXE4-0001kY-00 Neither the system_aliases director
nor the address_pipe transport set a uid for local delivery of
|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post test


/var/lib/mailman/bin/check_perms returns no error

Besides, I receive error mails from cron every 15 minutes :

2002-06-12 09:53:03 17I2PM-0005sU-00 Neither the system_aliases director
nor the address_pipe transport set a uid for local delivery of
|/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test

Where does it not work ?

thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

follow that one, and then you will not need to alter your aliases at all. In 
fact, altering aliases will break the config.

Just do exactly what this message says: set a uid in the system_aliases
director definitions in exim.conf

ex:
system_aliases:
  driver = aliasfile
  file_transport = address_file
  pipe_transport = address_pipe
  file = /etc/aliases
  search_type = lsearch
  user = list

(or user=exim, or user=mailman etc. depending on your configurations)
