[Mailman-Users] Exclude DSN From Bounce Processing

Thanks for the reply!  No, I am not using mm-handler.  I like the idea  
of pointing the alias to a wrapper.  I am going to give that a try.   
Regarding the wisdom of doing this, I understand the concern.  This  
will be used for a private announce-only list with a captive  
audience.  All members of the list are on the same domain and have low  
mailbox quota's.  Because of the low quota's, members are often  
unsubscribed due to mailbox full bounces.  I like the wrapper option  
because I can leave normal bounce processing in tact for all other  
mailing lists.  Thanks again!
