[Mailman-Users] Installing http://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/mailman, stuck at "Temporary failure"

I’ve chosen to use yugi.us<http://yugi.us> as the email host and www.yugi.us<http://www.yugi.us> as the url host.

1. I’ve added virtual_alias_domains = yugi.us<http://yugi.us>

However that causes non mailman email addresses from receiving emails:
<admin at yugi.us<mailto:admin at yugi.us>>: User unknown in virtual alias table
Reporting-MTA: dns; mail.yugi.us<http://mail.yugi.us>
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 3ADAF3636B6
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; alerts at samsi.us<mailto:alerts at samsi.us>
Arrival-Date: Fri, 23 Dec 2016 12:56:00 -0800 (PST)

So I’ve had to remove that setting.

2. I’ve (along with step 1 above):
- rmlist all aliases (including mailman)
- rm /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-man*
- newlist mailman (and provided the email url hosts owner and password)
- /usr/lib/mailman/bin/genaliases (and see the proper entries in /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

Now when I send to mailman at yugi.us<mailto:mailman at yugi.us> I get:
<mailman at localhost>: mail for localhost loops back to myself
Reporting-MTA: dns; mail.yugi.us<http://mail.yugi.us>
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 3282E3636B6
X-Postfix-Sender: rfc822; alerts at samsi.us<mailto:alerts at samsi.us>
Arrival-Date: Fri, 23 Dec 2016 12:58:11 -0800 (PST)

On my other working mailman server I didn’t have to specify virtual_alias_domains = yugi.us<http://yugi.us>

If I send to mailman at mail.yugi.us<mailto:mailman at mail.yugi.us> I get relay access denied:
Final-Recipient: rfc822; mailman at mail.yugi.us<mailto:mailman at mail.yugi.us>
Original-Recipient: rfc822;mailman at mail.yugi.us<mailto:mailman at mail.yugi.us>
Action: failed
Status: 5.7.1
Remote-MTA: dns; yugi.us<http://yugi.us>
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 554 5.7.1 <mailman at mail.yugi.us<mailto:mailman at mail.yugi.us>>: Relay access denied

I’m stumped … still looking through google.

I’ve reread https://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-install/postfix-virtual.html too many times and followed the steps that many times too :-)

Attached is postconf -n output, master.cf, and transport.

As Jim P. said, you may need

virtual_alias_domains = yugi.us<http://yugi.us>

in Postfix main.cf, although this may conflict with your

You need to figure out what domains you want to use for what purposes,
and how you want to deliver to Mailman.

Also, look at your data/virtual-mailman. Is the mapping there like

test2 at yugi.us<mailto:test2 at yugi.us>    test2 at localhost

or is it

test2 at mail.yugi.us<mailto:test2 at mail.yugi.us>    test2 at localhost

If the latter, you have to post to test2 at mail.yugi.us<mailto:test2 at mail.yugi.us>, not test2 at yugi.us<mailto:test2 at yugi.us>
or fix your list's host names and rerun genaliases.
