This is an Exim question, not a Mailman question, but since you are
here, if you have a more or less standard Exim configuration, you are

  pipe_transport = address_pipe

from the definition of the system_aliases router.

However, with Exim, you don't need to use aliases for Mailman. See
<http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html> for instructions on setting
this up.
