No, I can't. I know very little about Postfix. I saw your original post
and did not reply because I don't know what the problem is.

This would appear to be a problem somewhere in the Postfix
configuration. I doubt the mail is even getting to the
postfix-to-mailman.py script.

You need to contact a Postfix list or possibly the author of
postfix-to-mailman.py or possibly Debian or Ubuntu if this is a Debian
or Ubuntu package.

the comments in postfix-to-mailman-2.1.py say the above line should be

      flags=FR user=mailman:mailman

run the pipe below. This almost certainly needs to be the mailman user
and group (which may be 'list' in your case, but maybe not).
