I neglected to mention, if you try to use bin/dumpdb on the .psv file,
you will need to specify '-p' to bin/dumpdb.

Also note that you have an underlying problem here in that Postfix is
doing domain or address verification during SMTP from Mailman and is
returning a 4xx (retryable) status for bad addresses. You should
return a 5xx status. I.e., set

unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550

in main.cf
