You mean /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases?

Here's an issue. From main.cf:

mydestination = localhost, localhost.localdomain
mydomain = mydomain.io

You need to have mydomain.io in mydestination, either by

mydestination = localhost, localhost.localdomain, $mydomain


mydestination = localhost, localhost.localdomain, mydomain.io

Hoever, I'm concerned about the implication of

mailman_destination_recipient_limit = 1

What's in /etc/postfix/transport? If there is a 'mailman' transport
entry for the lists.anotherdom.net domain and this transport is defined
in master.cf as postfix_to_mailman.py, see the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/EYDt>, and probably just remove the 'mailman'
entry from /etc/postfix/transport and
removemailman_destination_recipient_limit from main.cf.
