[Mailman-Users] Mailman owner delivery

Hi all,

I have a minor mystery.  I recently migrated to a new server, hosting a half dozen or so Mailman lists.  The old server ran on Fedora 8, but I had upgraded to Mailman 2.1.18.  The new server is Fedora 22, running Mailman 2.1.20.  Postfix is the MTA on both.

Migration was just to copy over ~mailman, install the new software (same paths), install /etc/aliases and ~mailman/aliases.  And everything worked!  Or so I thought, I found one little thing that doesn't.  Held message e-mails going to the -owner addresses have a strange issue.  I have "list-help" aliases for all my lists, and the MM list owners are set to those addresses.  I've verified that the aliases work, and deliver mail to all the folks on the alias if I just send a message.  However, Mailman -owner mail only comes to me (I'm the first address on the list and local to the box).  I can find no errors in the logs, it all looks like it's working (status=sent).

Any suggestions appreciated.
