[Mailman-Users] mm-handler or aliases to integrate with sendmail

Mm-handler is definitely a cool idea. But it seems that once Mailman can 
update Sendmail's aliases immediately there is no need for mm-handler.

I need to test my understanding.  Is setting MTA to 'Postfix' supposed 
to cover the 'Sendmail' case with some changes or should there be a 
specific MTA file to cover Sendmail?

According to: 
it is just a matter of changing POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD to something 
different.  I either missed the article or I didn't understand it the 
first time I looked at the docs.  This seems like it might be easier to 
maintain and setup than the mm-handler.  At least it is the way I would 
have chosen.

Mark, Thanks for the pointer!
