[Mailman-Users] Implicit Destination?

I had a similar problem.  If I remember correctly I had changed a custom
recipient (Microsoft's lingo for mail alias) for a majordomo list on an
Exchange server to point to a mailman list with a different name.

I had to disable the implicit function until the list name faded away.
