I'm not subscribed, so please cc me any responses.

I'm trying to use Mailman with the Courier MTA.  Courier is extremely
picky about compliance with various mail RFCs, and complains that when
Mailman is trying to hand a message off to it that a non-compliant
address is being given to it.

The syslog shows:

Oct 24 21:57:15 maestro courieresmtpd:
error,relay=::ffff:,ident="list",msg="554 Syntax error - your
mail software violates RFC 821.",cmd: RCPT TO:

The Courier FAQ says this error is usually due to the sending software
not wrapping the RCPT TO address in <> 's.

Is that the case in Mailman?  Is that an easy fix on my end and if so
any pointer to what I should change?  Is it something else?
