The situation which makes them "mostly independent" rather than
"completely independent" is if Postfix is configured in a way that tries
to use Dovecot as the LDA for mail to Mailman. Normally, Mailman relies
on aliases in Postfix  to properly deliver mail to Mailman, and only
Postfix's "local" LDA uses aliases; Dovecot doesn't.
