[Mailman-Users] Postfix and group execution

You should re-read the README.POSTFIX that comes with Mailman.
My guess is that the aliases file containing your Mailman aliases is
owned by "users".

I recommend that you store your Mailman aliases in their own
aliases/aliases.db fileset.  Have these owned by mailman.mailman.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
