Mailman does not create an alias per se. It does provide a list posting
address and receives posts at that address and sends them to the list

If the only purpose of your MySQL database is to provide a list of
people/addresses to deliver to, you could use Mailman without
modification and let it maintain it's own membership list and handle
bounce processing and subscribe/unsubscribe, etc.

for information about setting up announcement (one-way) lists.
