I'm far from expert, but some comments...

First - you are explicitly setting a lot of settings to their defaults -
this clutters postconf -n output needlessly.

Not sure if it matters, but mine - and every example I've seen - has
mailman aliases *after* /etc/mail/aliases...

Mine is lowercase 'm' - again, not sure if it matters...

This doesn't look right - are you sure they should be the same?

This is deprecated - best to change it to

smtpd_tls_security_level = may

> smtpd_use_tls = yes

You had it set twice too...
