It's probably not the aliases* *files* that are the issue.  Permission
to create in the mailman/data directory itself is also needed.

Note that the wrapper in mailman/mail/mailman (or
mailman/mail/wrapper) needs to be sgid (02755, IIRC).

Both postfix and mailman can be finicky about permissions being too
*loose*, because that is a security hole.  Use the check_perms script
to get the permissions *exactly* right.  (Since postaliases is
actually being run, it's probably not your current problem, but why
not just do things right?)
