 Thanks in advance to everyone that will post to help me with this issue.

I config mail on the Snow Leopard Server, created my A record and MX record, created the correct DNS settings and had my ISP create a PRT record to point back to my static IP. All works correctly. If I send mail to jc@netwebglobal.biz or pam@netwebglobal.biz i can get the e-mail via a client or on the web interface. here is the problem that I'm having with mailman.

When I created the mailman account it asked for a password and a administrative e-mail address, which I set to student@netwebglobal.biz. ( see attached file) then i added the users.
the users are set to subscribe automatically and indeed they are. As soon as I add the user and check on the web to make sure i see the e-mail that the mailman software sends automatically. the problem is when I send another e-mail, the use dose not get it, unless ( see attached file ) the user under workgroup manager has student as an alias. ( see attached file ).
what can I do to correct this problem as when I tried to add student as an alias on another user it as the the name is already in use, which is understandable.

Thanks!

I can't really tell what you have done here. If all you want is a mailing list, there is no reason to add the subscribers to your OS X Server directory, or to do anything with Workgroup Manager. All you need to do is set up a mailing list in the mailman window in Server Admin, and add the users there. You will probably want to name the list something more relevant than "mailman", as well.

The most striking thing, by the way, is that all of the users email addresses - except student - are @mail.netwebglobal.biz. The "mail" is, at least, superfluous. Depending on the dns configuration, it may not work at all. Try deleting it.

Finally, the more substantial configuration of mailman is done through its web interface: http://yourserver.yourdomain.tld/mailman/admin
