If Mailman is corectly set up to integrate with Postfix, alias
generation and updating is automatic upon list creation/deletion or
running of genaliases.

This requires

MTA = 'Postfix'

in mm_cfg.py and possibly a setting for POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD if the default

POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postalias'

is not correct. It also requires a change to the Postfix configuration.
