The answer here depends on your MTA. If it is Postfix and
Mailman/Postfix integration is properly set up, as lists are created
and removed, the necessary aliases are updated. But if you 'drop in' a
list from another installation, aliases aren't generated. If this is
the issue, running Mailman's bin/genaliases will fix it.

Otherwise, you probably need to add aliases manually to /etc/aliases or
wherever. In this case, bin/genaliases will provide a list of the
required aliases.
