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.

old name

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.
