[Mailman-Users] Sendmail smrsh + multiple mailman

    I have a bit of an odd one here.  I have multiple mailman 
installations on one machine (for reasons we won't detail here) as follows:

    ~mailman/<host1_list>/<mailman install for one specific hostname>
    ~mailman/<host2_list>/<mailman install for another specific hostname>

    When e-mail for test at host1_list arrives, it goes into the 
appropriate folder and does what Mailman does best.  The same for 
test at host_2, etc., etc.  (this setup allows me to have the same list 
name across multiple domains, behaving as individual lists)

    The problem I'm running into now is sendmail's smrsh.  I can copy 
the wrapper from one of those hosts into sendmail smrsh's folder, 
however it will only work for that one host installation.  It won't work 
for the next.  And since all the wrappers are called 'mailman', 
obviously I can't copy all of them in the same (smrsh) folder.

    So, my question, or questions:
       a) Is there an easy solution to this where smrsh will work?
       b) If not, can the 'mailman' wrapper be renamed?
          (this of course means aliases also get adjusted accordingly)

H | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
