We don't have (or need) a list of the lists in the Exim configuration.  Exim
learns that a local part refers to a list by asking the file system (with
the require_files doing the file system query and the two local_part_suffix
things doing the work of turning, say listname-join, into listname for the

  driver = accept
  require_files = MAILMAN_HOME/lists/$local_part/config.pck
  local_part_suffix = -bounces : -bounces+* : \
                      -confirm+* : -join : -leave : \
                      -owner : -request : -admin
  transport = mailman_transport
