You should have an entry in your Postfix main.cf like (pointing to your 
correct aliases paths):

alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases

As long as the permission are set correctly on your Mailman aliases file, 
things should be fine.  You can check the permissions on your Mailman files 
by running:


This will report any incorrect file/group permissions, or, to correct any 
file/group permissions issues, run as root:

check_perms -f

> How do I rebuild the aliases.db file?
