Default postmap: fatal:...

Trying to figure this out - adding a mailing list using the control panel in ispconfig does not seem to do anything and neither does deleting them.


postmap /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
postmap: fatal: open /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman: No such file or directory.

Of note: I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and mail does work both inbound and outbound but the mail.log and mail.err are full of warnings and errors about virtual-mailman being unavailable.

It would seem that I've somehow missed a step when it comes to getting the virtual mailman to work properly.

Where should I look?

I do get the emails (although delayed) indicating the lists have been created but I am unable to subscribe to them and no further emails are generated. Testing shows that when I try subscribing to the list the user does not appear in the admin section either.

P.S. Thanks everyone for such a great product and for your support.

Thats just a warning and not an error. It does not cause any problems.
