Can someone explain why I keep getting an unknown mailer error 255?

Wait...I see it. It looks like hypermail runs as user "mail". I thought, using "osborn: "| hypermail -i -u -c /home/httpd/neutron/neutron.rc" " in /etc/aliases that it would run as user "osborn". The file index.html is owned by osborn, not mail. So the problem was that hypermail was not able to write the new index.html. How do I get this to run as osborn and not mail?

This seems to be the pertinent information:
