I still have no idea what you're doing because this is not at all the
usual way of handling virtual domains with Mailman in Postfix, but a
line such as

domain.com mailman:

in the transport file requires a definition of the 'mailman' transport
in main.cf. Depending on what that transport does, this may or may not
work with a second domain.

Actually, if you are configuring Mailman/Postfix integration with
virtual hosts, you may also need to add 'newdomain.com' to the

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html>.

That seems right, but you may need

<Directory "/path/to/archives/public">
    Options +FollowSymLinks

unless it is already explicit or implicit in global settings.
