What does "it remains in pending shipment mistake?" mean. I understand
you probably have difficulty with English, and I would like to help you,
but I can't help if I can't understand the problem.
So please describe as best you can, exactly what is happening to the
mail. Try to report the exact things that you see including log messages
rather than trying to summarize in your own words.

SMTPHOST = 'lab.company.net'
in mm_cfg.py. I am asking why you added that line. It seems from what
you posted that lab.company.net is your local machine. If so, that line
should not be required as the Defaults.py setting
SMTPHOST = 'localhost'
should be OK.

The above comment referred to your aliases file which seemed fine but it
wasn't referenced in Postfix because you needed to add
to Postfix's alias_maps where /path/to/mailman/ is the directory
containing your aliases file.

The only purpose of sitelist.cfg is to be used to apply various
non-default settings to the 'mailman' site list. To do this, you would do
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/config_list -i /etc/mailman/sitelist.cfg mailman
but before you do that, you need to create the site list by running
and answering the prompts.
Then you can start Mailman by running
That may solve your other issues.
