[Mailman-Users] Mailman aliases: various places on new server?

Hi Mark,

once again, I also had to move my Mailman lists to a new server. Now 
that I am almost done, I wonder about this:

When I run /usr/lib/mailman/bin/genaliases, I see that in /etc/mailman/ 
the relevant files are updated:

- aliases
- aliases.db
- virtual-mailman
- virtual-mailman.db

But Postfix won't react on alias changes until I copy at least the 
aliases* files into /var/lib/mailman/data/.

I didn't set up Mailman on the new machine, but my ISP did. In various 
documentations on the web I see various places for all this stuff. Is 
there any place where the genaliases output should be written to by default?
