Header rewriting (ugh!) in the MTA which directs the mail to Mailman (or
via procmail) would be one way.  Mailman source code changes (ugh!) would
be another.  Duplicating the entire set of u.arizona.edu addresses as
email.arizona.edu (set to no mail) would be yet another (UGH!).

Did the admins have a strong reason for what they did (they may well have).
