Thanks, Mark, I'll try that--I have to say that the docs are somewhat
confusing--especially postfix...

Hm, didn't work--uncommented the change and experimenting a little...

Aha, I think all works now.  What I did was comment out this line in

#relay_recipient_maps = hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

After a postfix reload I'm reading foreing subscribers on the
list...and no errors noticed yet on  the real host.

Best regards, and thanks again for your help.

Happy mailing all!
