courier/dovecot should make no difference:

Did this configuration work on the old server? It appears to be missing

virtual_alias_domains for the Mailman domains.

If you have multiple virtual hosts, the above withlist/fix_url is not
appropriate as it will put every list in the
DEFAULT_URL_HOST/DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST domain. Also, whatever fix_url is
necessary needs to be done before genaliases.

If you need more help, post the contents of mm_cfg.py.
