By default, newlist doensn't modify /etc/aliases. If you run
newlist -o /etc/aliases, it will add the aliases for you (it
appends to the file). You may then need to run your
appropriate MTA's "newaliases" command if it has one.
A plug for exim (my MTA of choice): you can configure exim such
that no entries in /etc/aliases are required at all. See this
URL for details and configuration file snippets:
Three cheers for Mailman, and three more for exim!
