Normally, with sendmail, you should have MTA = 'Manual' from
Defaults.py and this should not be changed in mm_cfg.py.

With MTA = 'Manual' whenever you create a list, whether via web or via
bin/newlist, the list of required aliases is displayed for you. The
same information is also emailed to the owner of the site list
(usually mailman-owner at ...), but of course if the proper aliases have
not been installed for this list, that mail can't be delivered.

See the entire thread beginning at
for some examples of what a set of aliases should look like.
