What is the problem?
Is Mailman updating data/aliases? If not, do you have
MTA = 'Postfix'
in mm_cfg.py? If Mailman is updating its data/aliases, but aliases.db
is not being updated, Mailman should be running the command defined as
(default is '/usr/sbin/postalias') with the path to data/aliases as its
argument after it updates data/aliases.
What happens when you run bin/newlist. Does it give you a list of
aliases to add manually? If so, you are missing the MTA = 'Postfix' in
Does bin/newlist give some error? If so, what?
