You need to tell postfix to use /etc/aliases file for forwarding
messages and then put the lines that mailman tells you when it creates
the list into the /etc/aliases file and run newaliases.

It took me ages to realise, because the documentation doesn't tell
you, that mail never gets delivered to cyrus-imap.  The lines in the
aliases file pipes the mail into a wrapper program
