Do you mean the 'owner' attribute of the mailman list is
LISTNAME-help at ... or something else.

Please try to anticipate my next question and give me all the info, i.e.
to what address do you send mail that doesn't work. How is that address
aliased in postfix - check every file in postfix alias_maps.

where does it go from there ...

I think you are saying that the 'owner' of the 'mailman' list is
LISTNAME-help at ..., postfix delivers mail to mailman-owner to the
mailman/mail/mailman wrapper, but then it only goes to you. Is that correct?

What are the


headers added to postfix in the mail you receive. What's in the maillog
following delivery to the wrapper, I.e. what messages come back from
Mailman after that?
