Setting "owners" to include my email address solved the problem; thanks.
"alias" still doesn't seem to function. Majordomo returns two messages in
response to the command:
alias listname firstname.lastname@example.org
The first message includes the confirmation token; the second is a
notification that the command needs approval and was therefore
unsuccessful. So far, so good.
I open up my browser to the address:
...and enter the token, select "accept", and submit the form. After
thinking for a while, it returns a page that contains only the header:
Majordomo Request Confirmation Results
No confirmation is sent, and the _aliases.T file is not created.
If I bypass the token approval process by sending:
approve password alias listname email@example.com
...the _aliases.T file is created, and aliasing works properly.
I've also tried replying with the command:
...in the body of the message, with the token left in the subject. I got
a surprise mailer error again:

In the meantime, at least I can make aliasing work by approving the
members myself. Thanks for any more help!
