This is OK, but ...

And all that does is redirect 'http(s)://liste.dinj.de/' to

So why is Apache looking for /WebFolder/dinj/mailman/listinfo/dinj? Is
/WebFolder/dinj the DocumentRoot?

Does this happen with any mailman URL? If you go to
'https://liste.dinj.de/mailman/admin/dinj' do you get a similar 404 or
only if you go to' https://liste.dinj.de/'.

Somehow your 'ScriptAlias /mailman/' directive is not effective. In a
more or less normal apache configuration it is not sufficient to put
mailman.conf in /etc/apache2/conf.d/, you must also have a symlink to it
in /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/. I have no idea if this applies to Mac OX
X Server, but you need to look at your Include and IncludeOptional
directives in the main apache2.conf or whatever it's called to ensure
that mailman.conf is directly or indirectly included.

It should be 2775 (drwxrwsr-w) but the important thing is the files
therein should be 2755 (-rwxr-sr-x).
