I don't know Qmail, and Qmail's aliases have always been a particular
mystery to me, but aliases are required for Qmail to properly pipe
mail to Mailman's wrapper. This is described in the installation
manual at <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/qmail-issues.html>. If
that material doesn't tell you how to proceed, I suggest you ask on a
Qmail list/forum.

I don't know why you didn't see anything in the archives (it's there
now), but my server received your original by email from the list
about 7 minutes after you sent it (over 6.6 minutes of that was in
greylisting of your first post).
