[Mailman-Users] Help with aliases

Woops - stock newlist doesn't add to /etc/aliases automatically... The
alias command I suggested won't help.

Maybe I missed something but - Isn't it just a "/usr/bin/newaliases"?

Unless you have some other automation wrapped around the call to newlist
- you could easily create an alias:

alias newlist='<your path to mailman>/bin/newlist;/usr/bin/newaliases'

This limits your command line options - but will save you a couple

You could also schedule a call to newaliases via cron - but that seems
like overkill.

I have been a good girl and have been looking in the archives.  But I am
missing something here.  I cannot get my mailman to update the aliases
database.  I check the setting in the manual.   I am running mailman
postifx.  I have looked at the newlist --help and I just cannot get my
db to update.  I hate to have to do this manually.

Any guidance would be great.
