Not sure it's *possible*...  We're just starting to test iplanet
5.2 with the idea of migrating from our sims 3.5 installation.
You need to set up aliases that feed a program channel virtual
address.  However, in 3.5 at least the program pipeline, while
a stock part of pmdf, appears to be crippled, and sun doesn't
support it, since sims didn't need it.

In theory, you'd set up local aliases like

foolist-request   foolist-request at pipe.your.iplanetdomain.com

and in your imta.cnf file specify config options for the program
channel that match the pipe domain.  You might need more than
one, depending on the args you need.   (Note this is based on memory
of 3.5, but it's largely the same pmdf core in 5.1 and 5.2)...
