Can you use list-confirm at ... or does that have to be munged too? If you
can use it, set


in mm_cfg.py and restart Mailman.

If the list-confirm address is munged too, you will have to modify the
definitions of the getListAddress() and GetConfirmEmail() methods in
Mailman/MailList.py to return the addresses you use.

Also, if you are concerned about the site (mailman) list, you need to
modify the get_site_email() function in Mailman/Utils.py.

If you need help with these mods, post again and indicate which of the
nine list-... addresses need to be munged and to what.
