Did you run bin/genaliases?

Have you set MTA = 'Postfix' in mm_cfg.py?

Have you set POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS in mm_cfg.py?

Are there any lists with host_name attribute matching a domain in

See http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node13.html

Does data/virtual-mailman exist? If so and data/virtual-mailman.db does
not exist, does POSTFIX_MAP_CMD in Defaults.py point to the right
command file (if not, set it in mm_cfg.py.).
