With the aliases as above, when you send to testlist, you're sending
through a normal sendmail "include" alias.  Majordomo isn't involved at
all, so the settings in your testlist.config file have no effect.  You
need to alter your aliases to look something like this, to allow the
Resend componant of Majordomo to handle the message:

testlist: "|/usr/local/majordomo-1.94.5/wrapper resend -l testlist
testlist-outgoing: :include:/usr/local/majordomo-1.94.5/lists/testlist
testlist-request: "|/usr/local/majordomo-1.94.5/wrapper request-answer

Now when someone sends a message to testlist, the testlist alias mwill
pipe it through resend, which will process it according to the settings in
testlist.config.  Resend will either pass it off to the testlist-outgoing
alias for delivery, or will bounce it to owner-testlist or to whomever is
configured in testlist.config as the moderator, depending on what you have
in testlist.config.
