You need

MTA = 'Postfix'

in mm_cfg.py and possibly other configuration changes in Postfix. I'm
not very familiar with how the Ubuntu Package sets this up, but it
should all be documented somewhere - just be sure to NOT configure

We do NOT recommend following the instructions under Postfix in the
Configuration section at

See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/postfix-integration.html>.
