You probably just have a security issue. When you installed majordomo it
wanted a userid and groupid to install to - which you have probably done. You
can probably subscribe/unsubscribe with no problems. However, when a message
is sent to the list it is handed over to the mail system. The mail system
needs to have access to the majodomo lists area or it won't be able to send messages.
In my case sendmail was running as user mail, group mail. So what I did was
make majordomo a member of the same group as sendmail and then change all my
group permissions. Once sendmail has access it will magically start sending
the messages for you.
