The "Bad owner email address: mailman@(unused)" error comes from
newlist and has nothing to do with aliases.
If you gave the command "/usr/lib/mailman/bin/newlist mailman" to
create the mailman list, you should have been prompted for "the email
of the person running the list:" and "Initial mailman password:"
asking for the list owner's email address and the admin password to
establish for the list.
The email address you enter needs to be a syntactically valid email
address including domain as in address at example.com.
