	This sounds like you may not have all of the required aliases
defined. I am including a portion of my aliases file for you. perhaps it
will help.


I just setup Majordomo 1.93 on my system. I'm having a little trouble 
with the required aliases. I have one for majordomo-owner, majordomo and 
the name of the list. I have an empty file called test (name of the list) 
and the file and test.passwd files. When I try to send a 
message to with the text subscribe test I get back a 
message saying no such list. I can get back the general help info from 
majordomo, but that is all. I have these files in my listdir and they 
have the right protection. Any clues?
