    Recently followed a how-to on installing mainman in a postfix/virtual domains setting and when I try to post a message to a list called "success" the following error message gets returned. I've been over things time and time again but am at a loss here:

    Error message that's returned follows:
    This is the mail system at host

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

    For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.

    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.

    No, that was the first thing I checked.

    Postfix file: (If anyone notices any other errors herein I'm certainly open to suggestions).

    I can post from postfix and from Mailman if necessary.
