You should have the following in mm_cfg.py

DEFAULT_URL_HOST   = 'hosts.web.domain'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'hosts.email.domain'
MTA = 'Postfix'
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['hosts.email.domain']

Then run

/path/to/bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url

If that doesn't fix the problem, post the output from

postconf -n

I don't think you can use the Dovecot LDA for list mail.

See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/ZoCj> for a way to automate
generation of a transport_maps table to use the Postfix local delivery
agent for list mail.
