as i understand it, it's done automatically by postfix, if you
tell it about all the maps. if you weren't using mysql, the
definition of virtual_alias_maps should include the alias maps
for any virtual domains:
and the postfix definition of "alias_maps" should refer to both
/etc/aliases and /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases:
postfix will resolve using first the virtual_alias_maps, and then
but i don't know how mysql affects any of that.
