If you put

MTA = 'Postfix'

in mm_cfg.py, Mailman creates/updates aliases and aliases.db. As long
as the timestamp on aliases.db is equal or more recent than that on
aliases, you can probably assume that Postfix's postalias command did
the right thing in updating aliases.db from aliases.

Look at the aliases file.
