You need to install a set of aliases for your new list. If you created
the list with bin/newlist, it should have reported the required aliases.

If you created the list via the web, the required aliases were emailed
to mailman-owner at ... which should have been delivered to the owner of
the 'mailman' site list.

This assumes that the default MTA='Manual' has not been overridden in
mm_cfg.py. If it has been, then whatever programmatic process that
handles aliases or delivery to Mailman without aliases is not working.
