They were convinced that specifying Mailman3 as an LMTP instead of an SMTP server was incorrect, because if it was LMTP I should be pointing at a socket instead of localhost.
Did they say why? I understand why a socket MAY be used, but is there a reason why localhost SHOULD NOT be used? (If it's complicated or unclear and this was all on their public lists, point me that-a-way.)
My own fault all the way around,
Well, maybe we can provide a better default, somehow.
A mistake that doesn't really report an error in a way that makes it stand out.
Reporting that error is pretty much out of Mailman's reach, correct? (Except by implementing config consistency checking that we should contribute to Postfix, I mean.)
