Everything compiled okay, I can subscribe/unsubscribe/etc... but when I try and send mail to the list, it bounces back with an 'unknown user' error, as if instead of processing the include command, it is treating it like a username. My /etc/aliases looks like
> listname:	:include:/usr/local/bin/majordomo/lists/listname

	If it's installed from a .deb package, why is there anything in
/usr/local/bin ?
	You should find stuff in /var/lib/majordomo  (also check error
messages in /var/log/majordomo )

	Which mail transport agent are you using ? smail , sendmail, exim

	The installation from the .deb files seems to be most compatible
with sendmail.

> I have checked the listname file, and it contains only addresses. Any thoughts?
	Do local addresses work and not remote? Or vice versa ? or
neither ?

	If you are running debian, we'll get it figured out !
