Thread-topic: Unable to expand a distribution list

Mike,
Changing from 640 to 644 did the trick. I guess with sendmail you can't
be too lax but you cant be too secure either.
Thanks a MILLION everyone for your assistance.
Dave

sendmail can't read /home/majordomo/runtime/lists/newsletter and
therefore can't honour the :include: directive.  Either do 'chmod o+r'
on that file or change the file's group ownership to match the GID of
the sendmail process (often "daemon").

Mike.
