I think I have simpler than all this:
- Stop the MTA from taking connections from the outside but have it still
accept connections from localhost
- use listen on interface directive in MTA if available
- ip firewalling if available
- remove default route or add bogus route that prevents the list server
from receiving mail from the outside
- Run qrunner until the queue is empty or at least the messages for the
list to rename are processed.
