Hi There,
I have just installed mailman and I am having a little problem which 
you may be able to help me...
I installed and configured mailman on a linux system which is within 
our firewall. We have a dedicated mail server outside the firewall.  
Once I add users to a new list called test It is sending the 
confirmation request to the users in the new list "test" and all fine till 
there. What happens here is mailman system is passing the mail to 
the main mail server and it again forwarding the mail to the correct 
email id but sending as, from the mail server. So when ever the user 
send the confirmation back, the confirmation mail is going to the 
mail server and since it can't resolve the mail id it fails there. 
Would you help me by telling what chages need I to be done in my 
case on the firewall or on the mail server which is outside the firewall 
to send the mails back to the mailman host.

Really appreciate your help
