Look at the rest of the bounce.  Does it claim to be from Postfix?
If so, check your Postfix config.  Most likely there's something
amiss in the aliases file, or perhaps you didn't run

  postalias /etc/aliases

after adding the mailman aliases.

The postfix logs also offer important clues.  Postfix uses
the syslog facility, so you may have to look at /etc/syslog.conf
to figure out where the logs go.  Hint: on many unices, take a
look at /var/log/*mail*.
