Vanity domains are almost NEVER virtual hosts.
A virtual host requires me to configure my server to answer mail for their
entire domain. That makes ZERO sense. Jesus Bob, have you ever worked on
anything besides a home pc?
lists.meer.net has hundreds of lists. 98% of those lists are
listname at vanitydomain1
listname at vanitydomain2
listname at vanitydomain3
NONE of these are virtualhosts on lists.meer.net.
