Hi. I've pasted the info from bin/newlist into /etc/aliases and done
newaliases (the info was)
## server-announce mailing list 
## created: 16-Sep-1999 niklas 
server-announce: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper post server-announce" 
server-announce-admin: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner
server-announce-request: "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd
owner-server-announce: server-announce-admin 
server-announce-owner: server-announce-admin
Then I've sent a mail from the webpages to berenmls at saers.com which I
confirm by hitting the reply button and sending it. I then get the
following mail, and I wonder why this is. mail.meg.nu is the mail-part of
the .meg.nu-servers and is a cname to doriath.meg.nu (which is the same
server as doriath.saers.com aka saers.com)
