Yes. The caveat is that version 2.1 (the current version) will not allow
two lists with the same name so you cant have:
  test at domain1.com
  test at seconddomain.com

Though you can have:
  test-domain1 at domain1.com
  test-seconddomain at seconddomain.com

Mailman won't do the SQL database (yet), but you can set up the aliases
yourself inside the SQL database. I think that Postfix can also handle
multiple alias maps, so you might be able to simply let Mailman use the
standard text file based aliases file.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
