[Mailman-Users] From address to virtual domain with Sendmail
flavour at partyvibe.com

I am using mailman-2.1.5 on RedHat Enterprise 3 (Sendmail-8.12)
I wish to configure mailman to use an alias for access: lists.dom.ain
(This is done so that I can move the service to another machine later,
if I so wish)
I have set DEFAULT_URL_HOST & DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST to lists.dom.ain & the
Web interface & inbound mails all work fine.
However outgoing mails from the list appear as Sent by:
list-bounces at host.dom.ain
Admin mails come From: list-owner at host.dom.ain
My guess is that this is more of a sendmail issue than a mailman issue,
but it would be nice to know whether anyone has got this working.
To attempt to get Sendmail to change this I have added support for a
genericstable in sendmail.mc:
FEATURE(`genericstable', `hash -o /etc/mail/genericstable.db')dnl
I have re-expanded a new sendmail.cf & this shows the FEATURE ok.
I have set up entries in this file:
list-owner list-owner at lists.dom.ain
list-bounces list-bounces at lists.dom.ain
list-owner at host.dom.ain list-owner at lists.dom.ain
list-bounces at host.dom.ain list-bounces at lists.dom.ain
I have used makemap to create the hashed db.
Testing with sendmail -bt shows that the map is working:
> /map generics list-owner at host.dom.ain
map_lookup: generics (list-owner at host.dom.ain) returns
list-owner at lists.dom.ain (0)
> /map generics list-owner
map_lookup: generics (list-owner) returns list-owner at lists.dom.ain (0)
However, mailman still sends out mails From: @host.dom.ain
What will mailman pass to the MTA? 'list-owner' or
'list-owner at host.dom.ain'?
Any hints greatly appreciated!
Thanks a lot,
