[Mailman-Users] How can I post to a members-only list when the domain is stripped because it is local?

Sun Netra V100 running Solaris 8
Python 2.2.2
Mailman 2.0.13 installed from source
Sendmail 8.11.6+Sun/8.11.6

I've set up Mailman and can access the web interface, etc.  My mail server is
the same system as the Mailman server and there is only one domain involved,
'dom.ain'.  I set up a members-only list, 'mylist'.  I added myself, user 'me'
as a member of the list, 'me at dom.ain'.

When I try to post to mylist, I get a message back saying that the message is
being held since it was submitted by a non member.  On the administrative page
to approve or reject the post, it shows that the message is from 'me' rather
than 'me at dom.ain'.

I have not found a way to add my username 'me' as an email address on the list
without having a domainname attached.  I tried '@localhost.' but that didn't
resolve things.  Is there a way to tell a memers-only list to accept a local
post or to tell it to be smart enough to know the local domain is an acceptable
domain and to append it to the username?

I looked through the FAQs and there was only one thing that is close to this,
however, it is a different problem.  Any/all suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
