ok, though I'm no majordomo expert.

the error messages seem clear:

user "diario2000", "davilag @", "dixan1" and "djbohemio69" don't appear
to live on your sendmail box.  Why?  I've no idea, but this seems to be
the problem.  I'd check the contents of /var/lib/majordomo/lists/brujula
and see if the addresses look reasonable.

did you have any addresses that were valid?

It's been a long time now since I've used sendmail.  It looks like
your problem is probably something obvious, but it might be worth
trying setting up a test list of 2-3 addresses and get that working,
then adding your 70.000 other list members. :-)

> BTW Simon, if you work in Madrid, maybe you speak spanish? :-)

As you wish, although my native tongue is English, not Spanish.
I don't mind.

As this list is in English I've replied that way, though off the list
I'm happy to correspond in Spanish.
