[Mailman-Users] Blocking a Domain

Personally I think the best way to deal with this, is to let him subscribe 
all he wants, but deny his domain on the mailserver side.  You might also 
alert his postmaster as to why the domain is now persona-non-grata.

In sendmail, you add the domain in /etc/mail/access and put a nice DENY or 
better still a REJECT next to it.

This allows him to recieve your list mail, but he cannot respond.  Realize 
that he can always jump to a Hotmail account (or any other number of 
web-based accounts).
