    My server name is, for example, www3.xyz.com.

    Mailman sends out notices to list admins with the following verbage:

    Please address all questions to mailman-admin@www3.xyz.com.

    But if I send mail to that address, it bounces:

    From: Mail Delivery System <Mailer-Daemon@www3.xyz.com>
    Subject: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    mailman-bounces@myserver also bouncing!

    Hopefully this will give someone a better clue as to what my mailman problem is:

    On the Monthly "password reminder" e-mails that are going out, no matter what the domain name is of the list, ALL the reminder messages are going out with a RETURN-PATH of mailman-bounces@www3.xyz.com. Yes, all accounts on the server that have lists, no matter what the domain, all have my hostname instead of the customer's domain. But ONLY for the monthly reminder, it seems.

    Worse, mailman-bounces@www3.xyz.com is not a valid address on my server, and these messages are bouncing, thus sitting in the queue.

    Help?

    EDIT: Here is an actual Monthly Reminder e-mail that was sent to a user.. the user's address isn't valid anymore, so it bounced. As you can see, it bounced back to mailman-bounces@www3.xyz.com, and that address doesn't exist, so it just sits in the queue until it dies. And mailman never finds out that this address is bad. Bummer.

    I've just replace my server name with www3.xyz.com, and the customer's domain with custsite.com, and edited any real IPs with fake ones. You'll get the picture. :)
