[Mailman-Users] Virtual Servers

Many thanks for your help, which has precipitated
progress.  I am now able to see the appropriate lists
when accessing the system via the appropriate domain. 
Thus www.domain1.org/mailman/admin leads to the
domain1 lists, and www.domain2.org/mailman/admin leads
to the domain2 lists.  All to the good.

However, I now find that sending a message to the list
on domain2 leads to copies being sent out to a local
user, but not to any users outside my network.  This
looks like an MTA issue, and so I'm sure I should have
fixed things slightly differently in postfix.  Further
comments below:

The trouble is, this is the documentation I don't
understand!  Can anyone help?  Specifically, having
set up domain2 as a virtual domain in postfix, what do
I need to do to allow mailman to use this?  I suspect
the /etc/postfix/virtual will need editing (do aliases
need moving from /etc/aliases for this?) but am not

Got it... FYI, the "MTA=Postfix" threw up an error,
but all went well without this line.
