Don't use the Yum install. It is 2.1.9 for CentOS 5 which is quite old.
Install the 2.1.13 tarball.

Is the list's email domain in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS in
mm_cfg.py? is "MTA = 'Postfix'" in mm_cfg.py?

If you've read
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/postfix-virtual.html>, note that
the part about not including dom1.ain in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS
is not applicable in most installations.
