Resolved. I had two entries and removed all but the reference to mailman aliases and it worked. I then reloaded postfix.
OLD ENTRY: alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases
NEW ENTRY: alias_maps  - hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases

Thank you!

What's in postfix main.cf alias_maps?

Look in those files in the order listed for list aliases. Ensure they are only in Mailman's data/aliases.
