[Mailman-Users] Mailman not automatically updating its aliases file

I was recently tasked with setting up a new mailman server.
We installed mm2.1.9 via yum on a RHEL5.3 server with postfix installed.
varprefix=/var/lib/mailman and prefix =/usr/lib/mailman.
This is what I have for custom lines in my mm_cfg.py:
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'mm server name'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'mm server name'
MTA = 'Postfix'
My problem is that whenever I use the newlist command and I create a
list, it doesnt automatically update the aliases file. According to the
install documentation on the mailman website, I only had to do a few
things including adding MTA='Postfix', etc. Are there any other settings
that I need to check on in order to make sure it is working?
Thanks for any replies.
