        I'm running Majordomo 1.93 on Perl 4.036 under BSDI 2.0.  In case
you are wondering, all I've had is problems, but most of them have been my
fault. :)  Anyway, after much trial, everything seems to be working, I can
send configurations, etc no problem, but cannot actually distribute mail to
the list.  Basically, I've hit the boiling point, and would appreciate any
help you folks may have.  Here is all the information I can think of giving
you, with names changed to protect the innocent. :)

        I start by writing my message to a dummy file

% cat > buffy
A test message.

        Then I send the test message to the list...

% mail -v sample < buffy
sample... aliased to "|usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l sample -h sample-outgoing"
Command: /path/to/sendmail  -fowner-sample sample-outgoing
Received: (from myaccount@localhost) by (8.6.10/8.6.10) id JAA22
404 for sample; Tue, 25 Apr 1995 09:39:53 -0400
Date: Tue, 25 Apr 1995 09:39:53 -0400
From: myaccount
Message-Id: <>
To: sample

A test message.
"|usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l sample -h
sample-outgoing"... Sent

	Looks like it ran... But the message NEVER gets there.  Not to either
account.  Nor is it in /tmp, nor is it caught in the queue, nor does the
system load average or ps show anything unusual.  It appears to have never
left.  Now,
when I run the "Command:" line, with the small addition of the -v flag, 

% /usr/sbin/sendmail -v -fowner-sample sample-outgoing < buffy
sample-outgoing... aliased to :include:/usr/local/majordomo/lists/sample
:include:/usr/local/majordomo/lists/sample... including file /usr/local/majordom
/usr/local/majordomo/lists/sample: line 1: sending to
/usr/local/majordomo/lists/sample: line 2: sending to myaccount Connecting to (smtp)...
220 SMTP/smap Ready.
>>> HELO
250 ( pleased to meet you.
>>> MAIL From:<>
250 <>... Sender Ok

>>> DATA
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself
>>> .
250 Mail accepted Sent (Mail accepted)
myaccount... Sent
Closing connection to
>>> QUIT
221 Closing connection

	This, of course, works perfectly.  (with or without the -v for the
ultra paranoid among us.)  I'm completely baffled.

        Oh, yeah, here is the relevant portion of my alias file...

majordomo:      "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
owner-majordomo:        myaccount, nobody
majordom:       owner-majordomo
Majordomo-Owner:        owner-majordomo

owner-sample:   myaccount, nobody
sample: "|usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l sample -h
sample-approval:        owner-sample
sample-outgoing:        :include:/usr/local/majordomo/lists/sample
owner-sample-outgoing:  owner-sample
sample-archive: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper archive -f /usr/local/majordomo/a
rchives/sample/sample -m -a"
owner-sample-archive:   owner-sample
sample-request: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper request-answer sample"
owner-sample-request:   owner-sample

        Well that's it.  If anyone out there can think of something, or if
you need more info, please don't hesitate to answer or ask, respectively. :)
