Thanks. That -a does make the difference. From the man page:
-a    With the default display, show the state of all sockets; normally
           sockets used by server processes are not shown.

I know we're getting a little far from mailman so I'll keep this short.
While I used Postfix Enabler to get Postfix set up, once set up, I started
editing the /etc/postfix/main.cf file directly. Somewhere along the way,
something I added started causing Postfix Enabler to crash when reading the
current configuration. But once Postfix Enabler has the initial setup done,
there's really no reason to use it to make changes as it won't help you with
anything that goes in the Custom section and that's where all the good stuff
