Thanks Falko. I have tried installing Mailman, I run on an error cause by DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE not being set which was fixed by adding 'en'. After that though I tried creating a newlist, it asked me an email and a password and then to hit enter.

After that when I try to start mailman service I get the following error:

* Starting Mailman master qrunner mailmanctl
Logging error: <StampedLogger to '/var/lib/mailman/logs/error'>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/var/lib/mailman/Mailman/Logging/", line 68, in __get_f

Site list is missing: mailman

Exception OSError: OSError(13, 'Permission denied') in!

Any idea why?
