	That might be able to be done, but a lot depends on the Lotus 
Notes server.  If you can configure it to listen only to a given IP 
address, then you should be able to set up another IP address on the 
same machine (maybe even bound to the same interface).  This other IP 
address would have to have a different name, but not necessarily a 
different domain.  You could then configure postfix or sendmail to 
listen to this other IP address, and configure Mailman to use the 
other hostname associated with this other IP address.

	If you can't configure Notes to listen only to a given IP 
address, you're going to have a much tougher job.  You can't have two 
programs share the same port number, so neither postfix nor sendmail 
would be able to share the SMTP port with Notes.
