no, i'm not actually using that domain. Cpanel allows you to easily set up
a list - it just asks you for the name of the list and a password and does
the rest for you. The problem is that the server the Mailman/List resides
on is not the server that houses the email server. So i'm looking for a way
for the 2nd server to be able to monitor the emails from the email server.
I went into the panel and there's a place to alter the MX record - one
option is for "Remote Mail Exchanger" which I thought would work, but it
doesn't. I'm not sure this is possible, but was hoping there'd be a way to
use Mailman when the emails are not on same server.
