I'm having hard time figuring out what was previously done, but ultimately trying to get at least one mailman list working on one domain.  However, it's currently somewhat configured for mutliple domains.

Your MUA that turn's everything with an '@' in it into a mailto: link
is not helpful :)

Your Postfix configuration and/or your Mailman aliases are not correct.

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html> and
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node13.html> for information on
automating alias generation for Mailman/Postfix.
