When I moved my lists from my home machine (xcski.com) to a virtual
private server (list.xcski.com), I used postfix's "/etc/postfix/relocated"
to cause requests for the old list names to bounce with a message giving
the new list names.  Spammers never read those bounce messages, but real
people might.  You could use that to make sure if people are requesting
the old list address that they get told of the new list address.

Or if you just want the list to be available at both locations, I imagine
you could just make your own entries in the aliases file (the main one,
not the one mailman manages) for the old location.
