Or configure Mailman/Postfix integration for virtual domains so that
mailman will automatically maintain virtual maps in
/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman as it currently does aliases.

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/postfix-virtual.html> although
it is a bit out of date on the Postfix side.

Only by adding the domain to mydestination in Postfix, thus making it a
local domain.

In order to do that, it has to ba a local domain as far as Postfix is
