You need to add these yourself to your /etc/aliases file (and run newaliases)
if you use sendmail or any other mailer which uses that method, or somehow
generate the aliases if you use another mailer which doesn't.  Try running
"bin/newlist testlist" and check out the aliases the program gives you at the 
end of the list creation process.
