Perhaps, I'm an Exim user not Postfix, so not familiar with it.  The
alias file was delivering the mail to users-owner@ so it would make
sense, though.

Removing the alias did resolve my issue.  But once I removed the alias
I had a ton of mail in "defer" status in the mailmain list.  So, I
ended up with more junk!  I set the "mailman" list to discard all
non-member postings (which is everything).

I hope that doesn't break anything?  I can never remember what exactly
IS the purpose of that "mailman" list, anyway.  What's it used for?
