Check your sendmail /var/log/maillog, and your /usr/test/majordomo-1.94.5/Log
files.  If your problem is a permissions issue, and you do not have "users"
local to that machine, disable sendmail security by uncommenting
#O DontBlameSendmail=safe
in the file.

If you do have users on the same machine as sendmail and majordomo, Check the
group write bit on every directory in the tree leading to your lists directory
and turn it off with chmod g-w directoryname and chmod -R g-w /path/to/majordomo
