[Mailman-Users] Beginner's question: no virtual_alias_maps in my main.cf

I have a probably very basic question: I have been trying to setup Mailman and 
link it to Postfix. I am stuck on the fact that Postfix on my machine uses 

As I went through the Documentation, I found 6.1.2 Virtual domains, where it 
is written:
First, you need to set up the Postfix virtual alias domains as described in 					
the Postfix documentation (see Postfix's virtual(5) manpage). Note that it's 
your responsibility to include the virtual-alias.domain anything line as 
described manpage; Mailman will not include this line in virtual-mailman. You 
are highly encouraged to make sure your virtual alias domains are working 
properly before integrating with Mailman. 

Next, add a path to Postfix's virtual_alias_maps variable, pointing to the 
virtual-mailman file, e.g.: 

    virtual_alias_maps = <your normal virtual alias files>,

My main.cf contains no mention of virtual_alias_maps, but has

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases

mydestination = $mydomain, $myhostname, $transport_maps
virtual_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/virtual.cf

Thanks for any advice.
