See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Mailman+and+Plesk>.

How is it that my MUA is going to select a profile for a reply to a
list message based on whether or not the list address is a user on
your server? How does my MUA even know whether an address like
dtest at mydomain.com is a real user or a Mailman list?
