I am getting really frustrated trying to configure a new list. I suspect
the problem is in either in sendmail or in the aliases file, but I cannot
find the source of the problem and I am not a real hacker (just a school
teacher trying to run a science education discussion group).
Here is what I am using:
RedHat 6.0 (but I am not using the rpm module, I installed it from
the tar file)
sendmail version 8.something
perl version 5.005_03
Majorodomo works fine; I can subscribe to a list and get the info back.
But I cannot send messages to the list. Depending on how I set the
permissions, I either get a "service not available" or
"aliasing/forwarding loop broken" message. I added the aliases to the
smrsh directory; I changed permissions to 777 on everything to see it
that would work; I made sure there were names in the list. I am out of
FAQ options. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

PS The list in question is firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is my alias
# majordomo aliases
majordomo: "|/home/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
# science education mailing list
science: "|/home/majordomo/wrapper resend -l science -h science-list"
science-request: "|/home/majordomo/wrapper majordomo -l science"
