    Go on, have a guess
    Appears to be a bug. The following should get you going again:

    useradd mailman
    /scripts/reinstallmailman
    /scripts/buildeximconf

    IIRC, if you don't set a password on account creation you cannot login into it directly by default.

    I've tried running this, but get stuck at the first stage, I get the following error towards the end of the script:

    Re-run as mailman (or root) with -f flag to fix
    Warning: Private archive directory is other-executable (o+x).
    This could allow other users on your system to read private archives.
    If you're on a shared multiuser system, you should consult the
    installation manual on how to fix this.

    Is this OK ?? - I have tried running again as root with the -f flag, but it still says the same thing.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks
    Daniel
