        Whoops. Forgot that. At least I managed to remember the postconf
        output.

        Note that Postfix is trying to use lmtp to hand the message off to
        cyrus, which doesn't have a mailbox for 'mailman' (the test list I'm
        trying to send to). I need the message to not go to lmtp/cyrus at all,
        but just use the alias map to pass it through the pipe to the 'mailman
        post' command.

        Thanks

          Use a transport entry with something along the lines of:

          mailman@... local:

              Bingo. I knew it had to be something simple that I was missing.

              I made one change to main.cf:
              Old:
              virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual.cf
              New:
              virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual.cf,
              hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

              I then created /usr/local/mailman/data/virtual-mailman with the following:
              mailman mailman@...
              mailman-admin mailman-admin@...
              mailman-bounces mailman-bounces@...
              mailman-confirm mailman-confirm@...
              mailman-join mailman-join@...
              mailman-leave mailman-leave@...
              mailman-owner mailman-owner@...
              mailman-request mailman-reques@...
              mailman-subscribe mailman-subscribe@...
              mailman-unsubscribe mailman-unsubscribe@...

              I ran postmap on that, reloaded postfix, and everything works again. I'll
              have to update virtual-mailman whenever I add a new list, but that
              shouldn't be a problem.

              Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
