Hi Mark,

Thanks for your help - see inline below for my responses.

This is from my current mm_cfg.py:

# Put YOUR site-specific settings below this line.
MTA = 'Postfix'
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/'
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['myhost.mydomain.com']

 From my current main.cf (snipped output of postconf -n):
alias_maps = hash:/etc/mail/aliases, hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases


virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql_virtual_alias_maps.cf, 

And, well, dang - I visually inspected each file and they both contain 
the proper aliases for the newly created list, so the aliases *are* 
getting created...

Ok - any other ideas where to look? ;)

Thanks again for the help...
