If your outgoing MTA is Postfix, see
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node13.html>. If Sendmail, see
step 6. in the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/B4Au> and/or the last
paragraph of the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/joA9> and the list
post to which it links.

If you are using aliases with come other MTA, you can probably adapt
the Sendmail methods.
