Not at all. I'm just trusting what the admins tell me.

Actually, it might not be Mailman. They have a automatic job that picks 
up new Mailman lists and adds the required aliases to the system. It 
might be that program that's complaining.

Anyway. It all works now. The list is called thamesvalley-pm. We have 
people posting. And I've just started the first reply-to munging debate. 
It's best to get these things over and done with :)
