Incoming or outgoing? Can you send mail from the box with the sendmail

What specifically are the postfix log entries for the looping mail?

>myorigin = /etc/mailname

This setting is a domain name, not a file.

>myhostname = domain.com
>mydomain = domain.com
>mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain $mydomain
>root at domain:/etc/postfix# cat /etc/mailname
># cat /etc/hosts
>     localhost localhost.localdomain
>     domain.com
># hostname

Did you look at <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html> and
the subordinate <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node13.html>?

That's what you need to do for Mailman/Postfix integration for
automatic maintenance of list aliases. If you want to do aliases
manually like sendmail, You don't need to do anything to a working
Postfix config except maybe

recipient_delimiter = +

for Mailman's VERP like options.
