The first one is a mail I sent from my box "hercules.utp.xnet". This was an attempt to post something to the 'sometime' list ;)
I wonder why your postfix server or mailman wants to reach me on this local address which of course doesn't resolve on the public Internet.

The second mail in the log I sent by Gmail to your list. I got a bounce:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 554 554 5.7.1 <sometime@ip-66-181-24-10.cust.i2bnetworks.com>: Relay access denied (state 14).
This has something to do with the configuration of the postfix server.

Unfortunately my postfix skills are rusty. I remember I had it running on a FreeBSD 3.x firewall with an ISDN card. But afterwards I only played with qmail.

I tried to install FreeBSD 8.0 on another box in an effort to mimick your postfix/mailman setup. Sadly the P4 box refused to boot from the USB stick image. Will retry tomorrow from CD;)

In the mean time you could go through the mailman doc and the postfix docs and try to find out what is missing.

And please have the DNS administrator, you ?, add an A record in DNS for deds1124.
That would make things less complicated.

Side Note

How should I go about setting the mail gid as "mailman" instead of "wheel" like it is now. This is obviously a problem. The wrapper isn't even being used right.

I know that the mailman id is 91, apache runs as group www...but mailman is set with a gid = "wheel"

I read the documents on reconfiguring but they don't seem to work as root commands.

A follow-up

After I installed mailman on a spare 7.2 system by myself, it became clear that there is an error in the ports Makefile when postfix is chosen as MTA for mailman.

For the error description and a fix or a workaround see http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=142000

BTW The instructions for configuring mailman are not complete. Because it has been a rather frustating experience, I intend to post a simple guide how to do it properly.

If you cannot wait and need this urgently, you can ask here for guidance through the rough spots ;)
