Based on the information on the NEWLIST file, I have tried to:
chmod 664 Lists/testlist
echo "some text" > Lists/testlist.info
chmod 664 Lists/testlist.info
and added the lines:
testlist-request: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper request-answer testlist"
then a 'su -' and a 'newaliases '
Then I tried to send a mail to
email@example.com with the subject "subscribe" from an
external mail account. This is the reply I get from my mail-server

I have added a link in /etc/shrsh to the wrapper program:
[root@mailer majordomo]# ls -l /etc/smrsh/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 Oct 17 14:01 wrapper
