[Mailman-Users] Email accounts for bounces, admin, confirm, etc

Hi Neilrey, Mark,

Thanks for your replies.

In my case, the company mail server is being maintained by the IT team, and
the mailman server is being maintained by me.

So from what you tell me, the /etc/aliases need to be updated in the company
mail server, right? Currently, the /etc/aliases are updated only in the
mailman server.

When I email to unix_sysadmin-bounces, it comes back with permanent fatal
My theory for this error is: when I email unix_sysadmin-bounces, it goes to
the company email server. Since this email server does not have
unix_sysadmin-bounces email account, it just returns the email to the
sender. The company email server does not have a way to check with the
mailman server. Right?
