The easiest way is to configure your MTA so that it has a different 
and customized configuration that it uses for listening to a 
particular numbered port on the "loopback" interface (a.k.a.,, and then you configure Mailman to use only that 
port/interface for all outbound mail.

However, these are questions that are more specific to your MTA, and 
you should be looking for support from their respective 
organizations, using their websites, their FAQs, their documentation, 
their mailing lists, etc....

We can tell you how we've done this sort of thing on our sites, but 
that doesn't necessarily have any bearing on how you could (or 
should) do this for your site.  You need to get help specific to your 
MTA, which isn't something we are likely to be able to help with -- 
at least, not beyond what is already in the FAQs.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006.  If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
