[Mailman-Users] mailman postfix howto

Umm. There actually _isn't_ such a file in the Mailman source.

However, I have recently set up Mailman with postfix on Darwin (OS X). 
I found the instructions in the INSTALL file to be correct and helpful. 
The one tricky thing for me was that I had to place the following 
information in my /etc/aliases file:

## test mailing list
## created: 25-Aug-2002 mailman
test:                    "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
test-admin:              "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner 
test-request:            "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test"
test-owner:              test-admin

AND I had to map actual addresses to these 'users' in my 
/etc/postfix/virtual file:

test at mydomain.org               	    test
test-request@ mydomain.org         test-request
test-admin@ mydomain.org           test-admin
test-owner@ mydomain.org           test-owner

Then do the usual postmap & newaliases commands.

If things aren't working for you, what is happening?
