I can't send mail to or receive it from my Mailman lists that I have

Here's the details:

I have installed Mailman 2.1.5 via RPM using Postfix as the MTA.  

-- I have modified the mm-cfg.py file  to use Postfix as the MTA
-- I've restarted Apache
-- run qrunner
-- set my aliases for two lists ("mailman" and "test")
-- set the values for DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and DEFAULT_URL_HOST in 
mm_cfg.py file (set to "test.ateec-list.org")
-- started the mailman service
-- otherwise followed the directions at

I can access via my browser Mailman at all of the following:




and I have been able to subscribe to the "test" list.  However I cannot
send or receive mail from the "Mailman" or "test" listserv.  When I
check the log  what I see is a lot of "connection refused (port 25)" or
"status=deferred (connect to[]: Connection

Messages sent from within the administrative area for the "test" list to
remind myself of the password have simply been queued and contain the
error message stating:

<golson at eicc.edu>: host barracuda.eicc.edu[] said: 550
    <test-bounces at>: Sender address rejected: Domain not
found (in
    reply to RCPT TO command)

However I can send messages to golson at eicc.edu as member postfix when I
change the "from" heading to test.ateec-lists.org within postfix itself.

Is this perhaps that I have the permissions for Mailman set wrong?   Any
help anyone can provide will be appreciated.   Thanks!
