Lo Yogesh,

Thanks for writing.  After my post I did some more research and
experimentation, which resulted in /etc/postfix/main.cf having the lines
you suggest, i.e.:

virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual,
alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases,

Postfix now has a different complaint, i.e
<bogofilter-subscribe at mail.osagesoftware.com>: Command died with status
    "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe bogofilter". Command
output: Group
    mismatch error.  Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be
executed as
    group "mailman", but the system's mail server executed the mail
script as
    group "nogroup".  Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as
    "mailman", or re-run configure,  providing the command line option

Checking user and group id's, I have:

[root at nic mail]# ll /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman
-rwxrwsr-x 1 mailman mailman 6248 Mar 14 16:46

[root at nic mail]# grep mailman /etc/passwd /etc/group

AFAICT, the permissions are set properly.  Do you know how to tweak the
mail server (as suggested by mailman)?
