damn. you are right. i have not checked this before but seems that 
confixx (an webserver control program, like cpanel) is messing with the 
it puts a lot of stuff (canonical, transport,etc.) at the end of 
main.cf. in a file called virtaul_users it defines something like:

@netmilk web1p1

i think thats the problem - unfortunatly i have experienced that it 
rewrites all of its own configuration files with a cron-job. so it's no 
option to edit this files it created itself.

i tried to include the mailman aliases below that configuration and i 
got an error message by postfix:

<"|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post
     netmilk-general"@p15135765.pureserver.info>: unknown user:
     "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post netmilk-general"

so maybe putting the virtual_maps just after the confixx configuration 
stuff isn't an option.
are there other ways of overriding the virtual_maps of this lousy little 


P.S: I just received Shoeppi's eMail: that's exactly the problem!
do you know how i can override this, "Leidensgenosse"? ;)
