Yes I have, and I restarted mailman and postfix.

OK, done.

<em>  Sorry; I had no idea of this, I'm just trying to get the system to work 
with mailman.  Obviously it is possible, and if I can get it done I'll be 
happy to contribute documentation.

After re-setting things as you mentioned above, and restarting the daemons, I 
sent an email to my test list.  Here is the relevant mail.log:

Note that lists.my.dom seems to get mapped to just my.dom and no mention of 
mailman appears here (I assume I would see some mailman logging going on 
here).  The /var/log/mailman/qrunner log only shows it was restart.

So the question is why would postfix not be passing the connection on to 
mailman?  Is there another 'transport' key I should use, perhaps, or maybe one 
of the 'filter' keys?
