  This is not a public mailing-list. It is private.
  To be more precise, what I want is to connect my private mailman ML to
another, public one. This is the scenario:
	1. someone sends mail to the public list (which I don't manage);
	2. the public list brodcasts the message, and since the private ML
address is subscribed to the public list, a copy of the message is sent
to the private ML address;
	3. the private ML manager (mailman) receives the message; however, the
From: field is set to someone at somedomain.com, so the message is help for

  So, I need to disable access control completely. However, if there's a
better alternative to solve this problem, I'm interested!
