Hey Lawrence!

If you take a look in $PREFIX/mailman/data/aliases, you'll see that
Mailman's nice enough to do it for you :-)

Just make sure you include $PREFIX/mailman/data/aliases in your main
/etc/aliases file. (Refer to your MTA's documenation for how to do this.)

However, if you're using Postfix, you have two options that I know of:

At the end of /etc/aliases:
:include: $PREFIX/mailman/data/aliases

...or go here: http://www.gurulabs.com/goodies/downloads.php and grab a
copy of postfix-to-mailman-2.1.py and read the instructions within. :)
