And also with sendmail 8.9.x you'll need to remove the group-write bit
on the /usr/local/majordomo/lists directory if you haven't done so
already. If you need ordinary users to access that directory check the
Majordomo FAQ for alternatives. If you don't make this change,
majordomo will misbehave unpredictably with the newer sendmails.
