Hi, Mark.  I appreciate the suggestions, but I was hesitant to reconfigure my postfix that way, for fear of borking my working virtual domains.  I should have mentioned earlier that I have my site configured using postfix admin, and after seeing your mention of changing the delivery, that got me thinking about the problem in more depth.

I did some new googling using postfixadmin and mailman, and came across this page: http://freemars.org/howto/mailman.html, this got me a lot closer, I just needed to track down the most recent postfix-to-mailman.py script, make the required edits for my site, and I have now successfully created and sent email to my test list.
