FAQ
Hello,

I've got two domains working with Mailman, one regular, one
Postfix-style Vritual.

Once per month when Mailman sends out its subscription reminders, each
domain sends out its reminders.

that is mail seems to originate from:
mailman-owner at real-domain.org
and
mailman-owner at virtual-domain.org

Users can reply to the mailman-owner at real-domain.org address, but
attempts to reply to mailman-owner at virtual-domain.org meet with this...

Apr 1 09:21:12 mercury postfix/smtpd[24031]: connect from
web13906.mail.yahoo.com[216.136.175.69]

Apr 1 09:21:12 mercury postfix/smtpd[24031]: CEDD8133F: reject: RCPT

Apr 1 09:21:14 mercury postfix/smtpd[24031]: disconnect from
web13906.mail.yahoo.com[216.136.175.69]

cactusairforce.org is the virtual domain.

taking a look at "/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman" shows entries
for all four of the virtual domain's mailing lists, but there isn't an
entry for the "mailman" mailing list (as there is in the
"/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases")

Any ideas?

    cactusairforce.org is the virtual domain.
    Do you have cactusairforce.org in /etc/postfix/local_host_names ?

    I have no such file. What does this do?

    Distro is SuSE 8.2 Pro, if that matters.

    it may be in a different place. It will be in the same directory as your
    postfix main.cf

    It lists all the local names

    Look at the 'mydestination' variable in your main.cf

    Mine says:

    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local_host_names, localhost,
    localhost.$mydomain,127.0.0.1

    This domain is a virtual domain, it is listed as

    virtual_maps =
    hash:/etc/postfix/virtual-caf,hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

    There is no entry in virtual-mailman for the mailman list (and hence no
    mailman-owner entry.

    I'm still not certian what to do with this one.
