My MTA is Postfix and I have other lists running of the same  
mailinglist.domain.com just fine.
The problem here is that I have a user in my server that has mail  
running in the domain.com and a list with the same name of that user  
running in mailinglist.domain.com. And now the user wont receive the  

My point is: how can I prevent the messages sent to user at domain.com  
going to the list?
