I've tried a number of things since (as gleaned from the archives) and mail 
from mailman seems to go silent as soon as I either use either 
"add_virtual_host" setting or change a list to a virtual domain from the 
web interface. Received mail sent to the virtual address does end up in the 
digest .mbox file for the list, so it *is* receiving the virtual mail.

In another example, after changing the domain to the virtual one, subscribe 
notices aren't received -- change it back, that it works again.

I wish the documentation actually described in detail how this works, 
especially since it worked well and was easy to use in V2.0.
