      aliases.db.db ?

      This is wrong, see here:
      http://list.org/mailman-install/postfix-integration.html
      Find ".db" on that page.

      Note: wrong information at the bottom about "postfix reload". That's
      unnecessary when updating a hash: map. Postfix checks the timestamp
      of the filename.db and knows immediately when it is changed.

      > alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases

      But this looks right. You could just set:
      alias_database = $alias_maps

      snip
      > relay_domains = lists.example.com

      If this is supposed to be the Mailman domain, it should be in
      mydestination and not listed here.

      Mailman questions and issues would generally be better handled in a
      place for Mailman, BTW.
