I am using Sendmail.  My "/etc/alias" file has:
    ## mailman mailing list
    mailman:             "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post mailman"
    mailman-admin:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman admin mailman"
    mailman-bounces:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman bounces mailman"
    mailman-confirm:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman confirm mailman"
    mailman-join:        "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman join mailman"
    mailman-leave:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman leave mailman"
    mailman-owner:       "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman owner mailman"
    mailman-request:     "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request mailman"
    mailman-subscribe:   "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe mailman"
    mailman-unsubscribe: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe mailman"

The list "list" was created through the web interface.  Am I supposed
to manually add similar entries for my new "list at my-domain.com" list?
