[Mailman-Users] mailman, postfix and /etc/aliases

I am running postfix and want to run mailman.


    By default, Postfix treats -owner and -request addresses
    specially.  Since we want Postfix to deliver such messages to
    Mailman, you should turn off this option by adding this to your
    main.cf file:

        owner_request_special = no

However, I also need a few aliases in /etc/aliases with a corresponding 
owner-alias (to set the envelope sender to owner-alias at domain.tld when 
delivering via the alias). But then I need "owner_request_special = yes"!

Is there any way to make mailman work as if "owner_request_special = no", 
while the aliases in /etc/aliases are treated as if "owner_request_special 
= yes"?
