The real question, i suspect, is how did you install Mailman?  I'm installed
from source, and I put everything into /home/mailman, but if you chose to
put your binaries elsewhere, then you'll have to tell your aliases to use
that place rather than /home/mailman/mail. 

The first thing to do, I think, is to try going to the Mailman bin directory
*and running "genaliases" to see what it* says your aliases should be.  If
it says something other than what I said, that'll probably be the answer to
your question, and you should just change the aliases accordingly.

(Sorry it took so long to answer this one, Jennifer -- I've been at a couple
of conferences over the past few weeks.)
