As I said before, I think this is strictly Postfix, not Mailman or
Mailman-Postfix integration. I think Postfix is not relaying mail from
domain2 to the outside world. I don't know enough Postfix to suggest
what might need to be done to correct this.

Since you haven't had MTA = 'Postfix', you've been using the default
MTA = 'Manual' which just tells you what the aliases are and asks you
to manually install them.

If you now run bin/genaliases, it should create the data/aliases and
data/virtual-mailman files containing data for all your lists, and run
the postalias and postmap commands to create the .db files.

Then you can update your Postfix config to use these files and not have
to do the aliases manually in the future.
