In my majordomo setup I found that majordomo directories where majordomo
is owner and group the directory mode cannot be 775 but has to be 755.
I had changed the mode to 775 because the FAQ had implied this would
work if a local user wanted to modify files. This doesn't seem to work
if the local user is majordomo. When I changed back to 755 my posts
started going somewhere. Many thanks Raven for mentioning what you had
Section 2: Problems setting up Majordomo
2.1 - What are the proper permissions and ownership of all Majordomo
All directories under Majordomo's control ($homedir, $listdir,
$digest_work_dir, $filedir, as defined in your majordomo.cf) must be at
least mode 750 (or 755 if you don't use "daemon" as your majordomo group
-- see 2.3below.). They should be user and group owned by "majordom". If
want to allow a local user to be able to directly modify files or for
example copy files into a list's archive directory, you may make the
directory or file owned by that user. However directories and files must
be then group-"majordom" writable (770 or 775).
