Make sure you don't have

MTA = 'Postfix'


MTA = None

in mm_cfg.py so the the default setting

MTA = 'Manual'

is effective. This will ensure that when you create a list, a list of
the required aliases is displayed and mailed to the owner of the site

These alaises are to be manually added to /etc/aliases or wherever
Postfix is looking for them.

You may then need to run /usr/sbin/postalias to tell Postfix to update
/etc/aliases.db from /etc/aliases.
