virtual-mailman is missing domain entry

Bug #266043 reported by Bytemaster
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNU Mailman

Bug Description

I've configured mailman-2.1.1-5 (RH9 RPM) according to

Support for a Postfix-style virtual domain in general
looks like:
virtual.domain anything (right-hand content
does not matter)
<email address hidden> address1
<email address hidden> address2, address3

But Mailman is not adding the domain entry at the start
of the virtual-mailman file, which is required for
Postfix-style virtual domains.
This means that mm is configuring a sendmail-style
domain. That's not what we want. I had to add the
virtual.domain line by myself, because otherwise
Postfix does not accept mails sent to virtual.domain.
Is there already a fix? I assume that mm will always
overwrite my edited virtual-mailman when a new list is

Since genaliases in fact owerwrites always the entire file,
Postfix-style virtual domains are really broken in mailman 2.1.1

Current Postfix allows specification of the domain in virtual_alias_domains so the "domain anything" line is not needed in virtual-mailman.

Changed in mailman:
