	These are postfix configuration issues, not problems with Mailman.

	You will need to modify your configuration to support those 
domains, yes.  There are probably several ways to do that, and you 
need to choose which one works best for you.

	That said, if you peruse the README.POSTFIX file that comes with 
Mailman, you should see one recommended method that has worked well 
for others.

	I'm not sure what you mean.  The FAQ entry at 
is definitely still applicable.
