I was missing this step from: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mailman#Postfix_Configuration

Associate the domain lists.example.com<http://lists.example.com> to the mailman transport with the transport map. Edit the file /etc/postfix/transport:

lists.example.com<http://lists.example.com>      mailman:

Of course I replaced list.example.com<http://list.example.com> with mail.yugi.us<http://mail.yugi.us>

Got further: I ran genaliases after that and virtual-mailman and virtual-mailman.db showed up in /var/lib/mailman/data woo hoo!

I test sent to mailman at yugi.us<mailto:mailman at yugi.us> and got in /var/log/mail.log:
Dec 22 13:39:32 localhost postfix/smtpd[3566]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from 0-46.static.highlandsfibernetwork.com<http://0-46.static.highlandsfibernetwork.com>[]: 550 5.1.1 <mailman at yugi.us<mailto:mailman at yugi.us>>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table; from=<caesar at samsi.us<mailto:caesar at samsi.us>> to=<mailman at yugi.us<mailto:mailman at yugi.us>> proto=ESMTP helo=<mail.samsi.us<http://mail.samsi.us>>

I’ve also added:

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['yugi.us<http://yugi.us>','mail.yugi.us<http://mail.yugi.us>']

Restarted mailman, postfix, and apache2.

I still get in /var/log/mail.log

Dec 22 12:17:50 localhost postfix/trivial-rewrite[6456]: warning: hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman is unavailable. open database /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman.db: No such file or directory

Did you run genaliases?
