    Dear shann,

    A \"premature end of script headers\" error is an error message returned by many web servers as a way of saying \"the CGI script didn\'t do anything.\" The error itself doesn\'t really do much to explain the nature of the problem, so there are a few ways to troubleshoot this error. First and foremost, check whether you\'re using a licensed copy of MailMan or whether you\'re using a demo, some of the demo expiration mechanisms can result in that error if you try to circumvent them.

    If your installation of MailMan was working but now suddenly displays this error, then it is possible that you were running a demo that has expired. All MailMan demos expire 30 days after they\'ve been downloaded. MailMan ordinarily provides useful feedback when it expires, but occasionally an installation with customized templates will be unable to convey this information because the necessary keywords in the interface templates have been removed during customization.

    If you\'re using a licensed version of MailMan, or if you\'re using a demo and it\'s been less than 30 days since you downloaded MailMan, then it\'s likely not a problem with product expiration. The next step is to run your CGI scripts from a command line (DOS prompt, xterm, etc). The exact syntax will vary from system to system, but will basically resemble this: \"perl mailman.cgi\". This will cause MailMan to run in offline mode. It will ask for some information in \"name=value\" format. Simply hit either CTRL-D or CTRL-Z (whichever one produces the end-of-file character on your system, CTRL-D normally is used for EOL characters in Unix shells and CTRL-Z is an EOL in Windows) and press the ENTER key. If MailMan is running correctly, it will output a stream of HTML. If it doesn\'t output anything, or returns an error, then there\'s possibly a problem with your MailMan script, possibly a syntax error that somebody introduced during configuration.
