[Mailman-Users] Accepting postings from multiple domains

I'm running into a problem with mailman, and am hoping that someone has 
found a workable solution to this.

At our site, we basically have several domains that all resolve to the 
same mailbox/location (ee.tufts.edu, ece.tufts.edu, cs.tufts.edu and 
eecs.tufts.edu).  Is there a way in mailman that you can set it up so 
that an e-mail from foo at cs.tufts.edu is treated the same as 
foo at eecs.tufts.edu, for posting purposes?  We are having problems 
trying to move people onto mailman (from majordomo), and depending on 
where they send the e-mail from they may get a different "domain" on 
outgoing e-mail, and thus have posts to mailing lists get held up or 

For the moment, I've been using the Privacy Options -> Sender Filters 
section to list the possible choices, but this is becoming burdensome, 
and for any new users means that they just can't subscribe themselves 
to the list, but that someone needs to go in and make sure that all 
this is taken care of.

So far, I've not found anything in the list archives or documentation 
for this (a lot of stuff on how to get the same list name running on 
multiple domains as seperate lists, though....), so I'm hoping that 
someone can point me in the right direction for this.
