OK. So if you invoke the wrapper manually as user mailman, it doesn't
complain about a group mismatch.
And the owner of aliases.db is mailman, so according to the DELIVERY
RIGHTS section of <http://www.postfix.org/local.8.html>, Postfix
should be invoking the wrapper as mailman.
Deliveries to external files and external commands are
made with the rights of the receiving user on whose behalf
the delivery is made. In the absence of a user context,
the local(8) daemon uses the owner rights of the :include:
file or alias database. When those files are owned by the
superuser, delivery is made with the rights specified with
the default_privs configuration parameter.
Yet, Postfix is executing the pipe as 'nobody', so either it is finding
the alias in some other database owned by root, or delivery is not via
the 'local' transport. What is the complete log message in the Postfix
log for the attempted delivery?
