Looking more and more like an option.  I would like to get postfix happening 
instead of sendmail, but I'm only willing to beat my head against the server 
for so long to make that happen.  I do still want to try Courier IMAP since I 
have specific serious issues with uw-imap, but since I now have uw-imap 
working, that can wait until I stop seeing the pretty colors around me from 
the sleep deprivation.

Yup, but what I'm trying to do is either treat ALL addresses 
as the same thing as, or pipe 
mymailinglist at       | mailman yada yada

Therein lies  the reason my problem is so hard.

I looked at those, but again, that's a slightly different (and eaiser) 
problem, since you're just mapping them to local users.

The problem is that I can't even START working on this stuff till the kid is 
asleep and primary chores are done, around 10:00pm.
