This is what I would like to do.  I'm a command-line person myself.  And
since I'd have to run postfix reload after creating the aliases anyway, it
makes more sense for me to run it via command-line.

I didn't put in add_virtualhost() in the Defaults.py or mm_cfg.py and still
having mail bouncing saying that the alias couldn't be found.

If worse comes to worse, I can just host all of my mailman lists on the
lists.mikesoh.com subdomain but would like to be able to use all of my
domains to create mailing lists.
