I thought I had configured pop-before-smtp such that users could send 
and receive mail from any domain:
My 'main.cf' file from Postfix has lines like:

# For use with pop-before-smtp
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = 
         check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/pop-before-smtp,
#       check_relay_domains,reject:forsythe
#       check_relay_domains
#       /etc/postfix/bad-recipient

mynetworks =,,

I am not getting messages bounced when I send regular mail through the 
server but this
'relay' error appears when they try to join the MailMan mailing list.
