Then presumably, you don't use MTA = 'Postfix' and aliases in Mailman's

There is something in the Postfix configuration that is causing it to
not recognize that the alias above is a pipe to a command and not a
user name. It is in Postfix and has nothing directly to do with
Mailman. The aliases seem correct.

Perhaps someone made some Postfix change involving virtual domains or
something like that.
