[Mailman-Users] Mailman and Lotus Notes MTA

Would another solution be to install Sendmail or Postfix on the Fedora box
and use this strictly for Mailman or would that require another domain? I
would prefer not to use the Lotus Notes server if possible. I guess what I
am asking is if we can have two email servers, the current Notes server
and a Mailman server running some MTA program.  If so, what would be
required to make this work.

Thanks for the help.

You need to be able to tell the incoming MTA to pipe mail addressed to
any of the list addresses to the mail/mailman wrapper with appropriate
arguments. With Sendmail and Postfix, this is normally done with

It's not absolutely mandatory, but you should be able to handle VERP
like addresses. E.g. incoming mail to

  mailman-users-bounces+msapiro=value.net at python.org

needs to be delivered in exactly the same way as mail to

  mailman-users-bounces at python.org

If Lotus Notes can do these things, you should be OK, but also see the
second paragraph of
