This use to work on a domain we had that has expired now and in fact when internal network users goto that old address, we can still use the old existing list. So i am not sure about the downstream and upstream packages you referred to.
I have tried everything you have suggested and nothing seems to work. You helped me get the old expired domain list working and i seem to remember something about split lists or something split. Maybe i should bring forth the network servers setup:
-mailman host= installed on domain.com which is our webserver (apache2 2.2.3), SLES10 SP3 with OES2 SP3. Has a separate postfix install that is not used (i seem to remember having to have this postfix instance send the email to our email server, more on this next).
-email server= separate server with Zimbra 6.0.9 FOSS (this uses postfix) running on SLES10 SP3 with OES2 SP3.The maillist users have been created. I'm not sure what else info to give you from this server.
I will happily give you remote access to the servers if you need it.
