Whether aliases integrate seamlessly with sendmail depends on exactly
how things are set up on your server.

If you are set up in a manner similar to Step 6 of the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/B4Au>, aliases should be automatically
maintained as lists are created/removed.

If you are using some other method such as a cron to sync the aliases
with the output of genaliases as mentioned in the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/joA9>, then this too will keep up with list

If you are doing something else, it depends what you're doing.
