    You can create two aliases, pointing to the same list:

test: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
test: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner test"
test: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test"

check: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
check: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner test"
check: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test"

    Note though that the email being sent FROM the list will always reflect
whatever the actual list name is.  In the above case, that would be 'test'.

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
