	Quick solution would be to add all mailman related aliases to
	postfix's alias file and then postalias it.  This will work
	if the lists are either 1) not hosted on the virtual domains
	that you host but rather on your primary domain or 2) each
	list name is unique and not duplicated across v-hosts.  Note,
	this is just the quick solution, not, perhaps, the best

	Note:  I have not done this with postfix as I host all my
	mailman	lists on my primary (non v-host) domain but I have
	done it successfully in the past with various other MTA's.
