Ahh, I thought with Sendmail they all stayed in the system /etc/aliases.
Shows what I know about sendmail.  I'm a postfix user myself. :)

Since the OP mentioned /etc/aliases I figured that he was using the
system-wide aliases file.  I'm still not certain why anything would have to
be changed after upgrading to MM 2.1, except for possibly the path to the
mailman commands.

Yeah, I certainly do.  It makes life just a little easier.

As always, thanks for the clarification Jon.
