Hi all,

If it's of any use to anyone here is a script that may make it easier to
automate list deletion/creation. It is run from cron every 5 minutes
during the day on one of our customer sites. It automatically
regenerates a second aliases file (for postfix in the case, but easily
changed for sendmail etc.) from the lists directory. The machine has
approximately 2000 lists and the load the script adds is negligable. 

All the best,
