Let that be a lesson to me not to adopt an "if in doubt, leave it out"
attitude to configuring newly-installed packages.

A quick hunt thro' /etc/exim/exim.conf finds:

     # user = list
     # Uncomment the above line if you are running smartlist


I now remember wondering at the time whether this referred to mailman as
well -- and leaving it commented out in the belief that I would remember
where to go if anything untoward happened in mailman.

Well it does; and I didn't.

Thanks for the help.
