    On a clean install of Debian 8, and ISPConfig 3.0.5p8, Mailman is broken for virtual domains.
    Two issues:
    1. The file is not created in /etc/mailman
    2. If the script is manually created based upon another thread, postfix rejects messages sent to the list address with:
      550 5.1.1 <listaddress>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table;

      Evidently the aliases are not getting created.

    Thanks for reporting the issue. I've added it to the bugtracker.

    I have discovered why email delivery is broken for mailman.
    There seems to be a lag going on between when /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman is written, and when postmap is run against it.

    Even though the timestamp is updated on both files, when I run:
    postmap -s /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
    The change is not reflected.
    If I then run:
    postmap /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
    postmap -s /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
    the change is properly reflected, and the list works.

    I confirm the problem and the proposed solution.
    After running
    postmap /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
    postmap -s /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

    mails are delevered to mailman.
    Nevertheless there remains a problem :
    Mails remain in mailsman's confirmation queue, their status cannot be changed.
    Every command / button pressed in mailman admin is directed towards the domain of the mailing-list. This results in a 404 error while basic configuration under the server's domain works. works while results in a 404 message.
    Could you give me a hint which basic part of the virtual host config must be changed to mend this ?
