And were /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases.db and
/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual_mailman.db updated when the list was

There may be some problem with the defaults

POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postalias'
POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postmap'

Mailman's group.

Is there anything in Mailman's 'error' log from the time of the list
