No problem ! I usualy prefere to find the solution by myself :)

Ok, it works when I send an email at
mynewsletter-join at list.mydomain.com ! I can see the mail passing in my
Postfix logs and the bounce from Mailman arrives, and I appear in the
Members List. So everything works fine. 

My problem was a permission problem :/ I've just tail -f the error log
file of Mailman and I got this :

IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

Well, I think my installation of Postfix is not very clean. It has been
installed from the sources and I had a lot of problems to make Mailman
working fine with acting as a Mailing-List manager.

Anyway, this is a 'test' server. I'll try to set this system on a clean
installation :)

Ok, this step is working to. If, as a simple member of the list, I send
an email on mynewsletter at list.mydomain.com, it's rejected with the error
message I've defined, so that's ok!

Yep, this step is working just fine too.

Thanks for your help!
