.I don't think that this is a problem with Mailman. The best way
.to test this is by sending mail to the fully-qualified address
.and seeing if it changes in the To: header. If it stays the way
.that you typed it, then you're just dealing with a simple case of
.RFC 822 compliance.
The address stays as the sender typed it. What does RFC 822 compliance imply?
.If you're using a different MTA, tough noogies. I haven't played
.with them enough to know how to deal with this. :)
Smail is the MTA on the site Mailman should be running.
Sysdamin told me that relaying restrictions have been very strictly set after
a dangerous attack by unknown intruders.
Anybody found himself in a simillar situation?
