	You might be able to configure your MTA to do this sort of thing, 
but I don't know of any way to get mailman to do it for you.  Exactly 
how you would configure your MTA to do this will depend on the 
specific MTA you're using, and you should ask that question on the 
supporting newsgroups and/or mailing lists related to your MTA.
