Just make sure you don't try to use a CNAME alias instead of a real 
IP address.  The RFCs require that all CNAME aliases get their 
hostname replaced with the actual canonical name that is referenced, 
and this will hose your Mailman configuration.  Directly resolve to 
real IP addresses and avoid any CNAME aliases, and you should be fine.

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.
