      hello,

      I am having problems with getting mail delivered through our Mailman mailing list server. Things were working fine until late yesterday. I include a log from a posting below. The message is sent to the alias, then is removed from the queue. It is never delivered to the person behind the alias.

      May  9 12:57:49 swiki postfix/smtpd[26679]: E774019985DC: client=nm2-vm0.bullet.mail.bf1.yahoo.com[98.139.213.127]

      As is requested in the postfix-users document, I am includeing a postfinger output.

      Many thanks.

        Postfix delivered the mail to the command shown above. Assuming
        this is the correct command, this doesn't look like a postfix problem.

          Thank you for your reply. I am really stymied as to what is going on. Yes, the message is being delivered to the mailman 'post test7' command, but then takes many hours to actually post. Can someone clarify what is actually happening in the following line. I read that it means the message is removed from the postfix queue, but then where is it being held for all that time. I find no other messages in the log file until it eventually is delivered.

          Postfix delivered the mail to the command shown above.  Assuming
          this is the correct command, this doesn't look like a postfix problem.

            When Postfix logs status=sent, the mailman process has taken
            responsibility for further processing, and Postfix removes
            the message from its queue.

            If nothing happens then you need to examine the mailman setup
            first.
