Shewah. Only one of these 3 files exists on my machine, 
/var/qmail/control/rcpthosts which contains


But I think I am narrowing the problem down to permissions issues. I 
reinstalled Mailman again with some different choices for --with-mail-gid 
and --with-cgi-gid and I'm getting farther. I can now send email to a list 
but I can't yet get the web interface for admin to run. Also I need to 
chown all of the list stuff after doing the bin/newlist.

It turns out (by the way) that all of the aliases, at least on my system, 
are in /var/qmail/alias but this is probably because I don't have any 
virtual domains set up. I guess my very limited knowledge of things 
suggested that it would be hard given I don't have access to the DNS server 
for my domain (my ISP has this).
