needs to cannot, and everytime it tries, I get that message from

    Reason:  Message has implicit destination

the user is subscribed. what can i do to get around/fix this problem?

this happens when doing :

echo "testing" | mail some at list.at.my.company

the client machine is a solaris 2.6(sparc) running sendmail 8.9.1 from
sunfreeware.com, i have it masqerading as itself. if i don't masqerade
it shows mails comming from user at hostname not user at hostname.domainname.
and mailman doesnt want to let a subscriber subscribe as user at hostname.

running mailman 2.0beta1
