There's an excellent program in Mailman's contrib folder in the source
called qmail-to-mailman.py which eliminates the need for specific
aliases as you have listed. It's been years since I used qmail but as I
recall, qmail has the ability to process a mail to a list through a
configurable program. I adapted qmail-to-mailman.py to create
courier-to-mailman (also in contrib) for the courier MTA, which is
similar to qmail in some regards, and it works perfectly.
