Oh dummy me!
And I always wondered how the virtual mail can get forwarded from local
to mailman. You have explained everything in one line.
However, with

  POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = '/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual_to_transport'

it still does not work. Therefore I am going back to old
generated automatically by genaliases.
And everything is working fine now.
So it seems that


is not necessary for "virtual_transport=dovecot". (?)

I will keep that in mind for future requests.
Wanted to be short but now realize that complete URLs are easier to find
and click for others.

Maybe a hint in


that "alias_maps = ..., hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases"
is still needed for virtual domains would be a helper for dummies like me.
I would also offer to send my now working setup (including mm_cfg.py) to
this list for others that stumble like me.

  Thanks again so much Mark!
