I don't understand the problem? Doesn't Postfix already reject mail for
unknown recipients? The only Mailman recipients are the listname(-*)@...
addresses that Postfix already knows via data/virtual-mailman and
data/aliases. If there are also list members on the mailman server, they
should have mailboxes or be otherwise deliverable. The only Mailman
related mail to list members is outgoing mail.
