Then that won't work either.

I don't have a static IP. I have to create mailboxes on my ISP's server.
Then use fetchmail to retrieve the messages. This means the mailbox has
to be pre-defined to my ISP then I have fetchmail map that to the actual
list mailbox in mailman.

The MTA that delivers to mailman is postfix but as I said above, the
issue is that I have to use fetchmail. As far as mailman is concerned it
is indeed going to list-request so the actual address used by list
members is transparent to mailman. That is why I need to munge the
Reply-To header for confirmations.
