The mail -v results in the following:
[Awenet]:/usr/users/wrd> echo "hello" | mail -v majordomo-owner
majordomo-owner... aliased to "|/usr/local/libexec/majordomo/bin/mj_email

...is what I see in configedit GLOBAL. I'll try putting my email address

Well, no, I'm not sure...I do know both are failing, but I guess I can't
say the owner problem is causing the other failure. I'll make that change
