My MTA ist Postfix. I have added in main.cf

| alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/etc/aliases.mailman
| alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/etc/aliases.mailman

and /etc/aliases.mailman is

| -rw-rw-r--  1 root  mailman  11227 Feb  8 15:24 /etc/aliases.mailman

When i create a new list, i use

| newlist -o /etc/aliases.mailman ...

This apped the listaliases to the file /etc/aliases.mailman.

The last step ist to rebuild the aliases database with the command
newaliases. Normaly only root can execute newaliases. But with sudo,
mailman also can execute this.

,----[ /etc/sudoers ]
| mailman mailman=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/newaliases

Thats my way.
