Unfortanatly, I've checked for that, and all is as you said ( I've included
exactly what I did in a attachment. )
I get the same error if I catualy go throught the mail system, and not just
simulate a message w/  the "( echo ) | " stufs.
"Olivia C. Williamson" <olivia@stanford.edu> Wrote that he had a simular
problem that was fixed by using "bin"'s GID, but that didn't fix it either.

 Config-test for Majordomo



 Obvious things:
 environment variables
   HOME=/usr/home/exploits/mjd
   LOGNAME=mouse
   MAJORDOMO_CF=/usr/home/exploits/mjd/majordomo.cf
   PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/ucb
   SHELL=/bin/sh
   TZ=EST
   USER=mouse
 euid/egid checks
   effective user  = exploits (uid 401)
   effective group = daemon users (gid 2 100 )
 uid/gid checks
   real      user  = exploits (uid 401)
   real      group = daemon users (gid 2 100 )


        Non obvious things that cause headaches:


Good: 'require'd /usr/home/exploits/mjd/majordomo.cf okay.
Good: found ctime.pl okay.
Good: found majordomo_version.pl okay.
Good: found majordomo.pl okay.
Good: found shlock.pl okay.
Good: found config_parse.pl okay.

You're running Majordomo Version 1.94.1.

--==> Majordomo home directory is /home/exploits/mjd.
 Include directories

 Mailers
You have defined a mailer for delivery.
Attempting to verify that this is a valid mailer...looks okay.
You have defined a mailer for delivering administrative messages.
Attempting to verify that this is a valid mailer...looks okay.
 Checking majordomo.cf
Checking to see if there are new variables that should be in
your majordomo.cf file...
Have you configured where Majordomo is?
        $whereami is anx0824.slip.appstate.edu
Good: yup!
 end of tests


Nothing bad found!  Majordomo _should_ work correctly.

If it doesn't, check your configuration file
        (/usr/home/exploits/mjd/majordomo.cf)
closely, and if it still looks okay, consider asking the majordomo-users
mailing list at "majordomo-users@greatcircle.com" for assistance.  Be sure
and fully specify what your problems are, and what type of machine (and
operating system) you are using.

Enjoy!
