I know nothing about Proofpoint and not much about LDAP, but every list
address has a target which is a pipe to Mailman's mail wrapper with
unique arguments depending on the address. E.g., `list at example.com`
pipes to `mailman/mail/mailman post list` and `list-suffix at example.com`
pipes to `mailman/mail/mailman suffix list` for the various suffixes.

If you can do this programmatically, you may be able to do it similarly
to the way Exim does it (see <http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html>).

Otherwise, you will probably need 10 individual entries per list for the
list name and the nine suffixes.
