According to the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/QoA9>, it should be
/usr/share/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py. If it's not there, I don't know
where it might be.

I don't know how Apple's GUI creates lists, but if it created entries
for the list in /var/mailman/data/aliases it should also create virtual
mappings in /var/mailman/data/virtual-mailman and that file should be
referenced in Postfix main.cf virtual_alias_maps, e.g.

virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual_users,

If virtual-mailman is not created, there is something missing from
mm_cfg.py. There should be


in mm_cfg.py.
