Right, at least assuming you did reload Postfix after editing main.cf.

You have exceeded my knowledge of Postfix. As far as I can see, you
have the generated /etc/mailman/transport_mailman referenced in
Postfix main.cf transport_maps =, and this should be specifying the
'local' transport for list mail, but the maillog shows 'relay=dovecot'
(if it still does - have you verified this for the latest
configuration?). If by chance, the current error in the maillog does
not specify relay=dovecot, you can post that error as it may help.

But, if this mail is being handled by the dovecot transport instead of
the local transport, I don't know why. You might try the postfix-users
list <http://www.postfix.org/lists.html> or the dovecot list
<http://dovecot.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/dovecot>. Perhaps someone
there can help.
