[Mailman-Users] mailman with mysql/maildrop

	I must preface this by noting that I have in fact Googled for this  
but have not found any solutions that work. I have an Ubuntu box  
(Hardy) and have a mysql/postfix setup as documented in the Flurdy  
howto found at http://flurdy.com/docs/postfix/ ... but I also have  
maildrop in the mix. It seems to work ok, except with mailman. I added  
mailman last night and now I'm getting the following error when I try  
to send to list addresses.

status=bounced (user unknown. Command output: ERR: authdaemon:  
s_connect() failed: Permission denied Invalid user specified. )

Now, I realize what the error is telling me. It's having problems  
finding the user. I have the users in a mysql db, and the structure  
looks like the following:


Should I put something for the mailman addresses in there as well? I  
can do that, since I don't have that many lists.
If not, is there another way around this? I did try just telling  
postfix to look at another transport map, but maildrop is still  
involved and it's looking at the mysql db.

(otherwise, everything else seems to be working.. it's just this part  
that I'm getting hung up on!)
