Subject: Majordomo & RedHat 6.0 problem

I've been using Majordomo for a few years now, most recently on a RedHat 5.2
box.  I recently upgraded it to RH 6.0, and haven't been able to get it to
work.

Rather than go through the hours I've spent on this, I installed a test
version of Majordomo 1.94-4.  Everything was set up according to the
INSTALL file.  Everything works fine, until I get to the part about:

      % touch /path/to/majordomo/lists/test
      % echo 'lists' | mail majordomo     

At this point, the Log records:

Jun 07 21:02:16 goblin.punk.net majordomo[16388] {} ABORT majordomo@goblin.punk.net:  is not a valid return address.

And an email message to root also saying that majordomo@goblin.punk.net is 
not a valid return address.

Some info:

Sendmail:  v8.51
	smrsh has been turned off
	majordomo, majordom, daemon, mail are all set to 'trusted'

Does anyone have the slightest clue what's going on?  I'm getting kind
of desperate here, I've got some pretty important lists that aren't running.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
