Thanks Stephen & Mark.

Mark, Sendmail uses the manually created Aliases to deliver to
Mailman. But I think I'd rather have the integration with the aliases
automatically created.

I'm sure that I'll have further questions since this will be my first
Postfix install, but I'll find a proper Postfix mailing list to ask
the stupid Postfix questions. I'll reserve the stupid Mailman question
for here ;)

well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out,
shouting "What a great ride!"
