	Maybe your aliases file hasn't been rebuilt.  Afterall, the 
/etc/aliases file is only used as input to build the database which 
is actually used by the MTA, and the database won't be updated until 
you run "newaliases" after changing the /etc/aliases file. 
Alternatively, perhaps the aliases file you're actually using is 
somewhere else, so changes to this file are not relevant anymore.

	But both of these problems are specific to your MTA, not Mailman. 
You'd be better off using the resources which are dedicated to your 
MTA (and your platform) to help you track down these problems.
