If you write a message to firstname.lastname@example.org does the message go
out to all the members of the list? What about
email@example.com? If it does not, your problem is with
sendmail, dns, hosts file, or something other than majordomo.
Your aliases file looks fine for a basic list.
You did not quite send enough of your messages log file, but it looks
like mail is relayed via the greg hostname.
Is the "greg" hostname the machine that has majordomo on it?
Does smcmetal.com have an MX that points to greg?
