Yes, this means you have a mail configuration which doesn't work well
with Mailman/Postfix..

Your best and easiest solution is to use 'mail.mydomain.com' as both
the web domain and the email domain for Mailman. Since this domain is
already Postfix local, it will work with Mailman generated aliases and
no virtual-mailman.

Otherwise, see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ZoCj>.
