[Mailman-Users] New to mailman, some help

Howdy people,


I'm new to mailman as a system admin, anyway use it for several projects but
as a user.


Here's what I've already done:


-          I've setup the newlist "mailman"

-          Add to /etc/postfix/transport: "lists.mydomain.pt mailman:"

-          Postmap /etc/postfix/transport

-          Added to main.cf: transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport &
mailman_destination_recipient_limit = 1

-          On /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py add: "MTA=Postfix"

-          On /etc/postfix/master.cf added: "mailman   unix  -       n
n       -       -       pipe flags=FR user=list

y ${nexthop} ${user}"


I can subscribe to the any of the new lists I created, but when I try to
post, postfix doesn't access the account/alias, example, did a list named
"bad", but when I try to send email to bad at lists.mydomain.pt it's rejected.


On my server, there's an already implementation and running production
config of a DBMail instalation, that read's the domain access and alias like



mydestination = mysql:/etc/postfix/domains-sql.cf


and for accounts:


local_recipient_maps            = mysql:/etc/postfix/sql-recipients.cf


I've runned the genalias from mailman bin directory, and it created the
data/aliases file, and also added it to postfix alias_maps.


Maybe the dbmail config is overriding the rest? Does it has a solution or
its better to use a server with a clean postfix instalation?


Thanks in advanced,

Jorge Bastos,
