We're actually migrating to Proofpoint (no more sendmail). Proofpoint will use our LDAP server for routing mail, so I'm trying to determine the best way to represent our mailman aliases in LDAP.

    Are your mailing lists mixed in a dedicated (sub)domain name?  Or are 
    they mixed in with other non-mailing list addresses?
    The former probably doesn't need much other than something akin to a 
    mailertable entry.  (Is that also migrating to LDAP?)  If it's the 
    former, you're going to need /something/ to cause Sendmail to recognize 
    the mailing list addresses.  This probably means that you're going to 
    need LDAP entries.
