[Mailman-Users] List moving and renaming

I'm both moving and renaming a customer's list.  The list's current name
resembles frobniz at lists.fmp.com.  After the move, on the new Mailman
installation, it will be called something like fblist at frobniz.com.
Forwarding mail addressed to the old list to the new list address is no

The list administrator will announce to the subscribers that the list's
name will change, but there will inevitably be subscribers who will miss
the announcement and send mail to the old list address.  Will Mailman on
the new server reject redirected email if addressed to the old list
name, even if the sender's address is in the subscriber list?  If so, is
there any way to get around this?
