This one is definitely wrong. In Mailman 2.1.x, maillist-admin is a
deprecated name, and it goes to bounce processing, not to the owner.

I think you can remove all the above from virtusertable and remap it
unless you have a pontential conflict with a non-mailman address in
some other domain, e.g. maillist at ccdd.com.

That could cause more than one problem, but I think even with the

maillist-bounces at aabb.com maillist-bounces

entry in virtusertable, both maillist-bounces at aabb.com and
maillist-bounces at mail.aabb.com will be delivered to mailman anyway,
the former by being redirected to the local maillist-bounces alias via
virtusertable and the latter by getting directly to the alias.
