[Mailman-Users] MM 2.1: aliases

I was wondering if anyone could give me tips/advice about using multiple
alias files or includes to manage the aliases for my mailing lists.

I have MM 2.1.4 running on a Solaris 8 Sparc box with NIS (and Exim), and
I have 45 mailing lists. Thus the NIS alias file has 450 new entries (10
for each mailing list) and my original idea was to use an include (such
as, 'mailman: :include:/local/etc/mm-aliases') in the alias file rather
than have it fill up with MM entries.

But I realized that as each mailing list has its own alias this wouldn't
work. I believe it is possible to have a set up with multiple alias files
but am not sure how to achieve this.

Thus if anyone has experience of managing MM aliases with multiple alias
files (or some other way) to avoid filling the alias file up with MM
entries I'd appreciate their advice.
