Well, I don't think it's a problem with the MTA, but it can be
configured.  Nevertheless, you reminded me of something.

Mailman (at least before V2) does not allow you to enter an email address
without a hostname.  This is under the Privacy Options and posters
section.  If you enter an address without being qualified and hit
"submit", it just wipes out that entry.

Is this a bug or intentional?
