I'm using postfix with mailman and I can't post mail to the mailing list.
I can subscribe to a list, both I and the owner of the mailing list get
an email notifications. But I do not receive email when
posting to any of the mailing list that I created.

Do you receive other people's posts? Do others receive yours?

I've checked the duplication email option on the admin interface are
unchecked.

This is not what controls this. The option that controls receiving your
own posts is "not metoo".

Error message in /var/log/maillog:

I don't see an error. I see a message sent to a spam filter and removed
from the queue and then a message relayed to bigiron.ucsd.edu and then
removed from the queue

I used to were able to post to list, but after I changed the
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST to not to be the same as my DEFAULT_URL_HOST, it
stopped working.
If you didn't run fix_url on the list, changing DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST
should do nothing. If you did run fix_url or otherwise change the
list's host_name attribute, this will affect the domain of the
envelope sender of posts which may affect acceptance by the MTA, but I
don't see this in the log.

The entry in my /usr/local/mailman/Mailman is:

I assume you mean /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py

MTA = 'Postfix'

SMTPHOST = 'localhost'
SMTPPORT = 25
POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postalias'
POSTFIX_MAP_CMD = '/usr/sbin/postmap'

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'nbirn.net'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'portal.nbirn.net'

add_virtualhost(DEFAULT_URL_HOST, DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST)

Seems OK.
