Is it just me, or is this sort of crap anoying, especially given the number
of sites with shared mail pools on a large number of systems, where users
incoming mail addresses don't correspond to where their mail is coming
from (ie, firstname.lastname@example.org doesn't go to a real machine), etc?
IMHO, list-serv should be configured like other mailing list servers and
allow 'non-subscribers' to post to the list, or it should include an
ALIAS facility allowing it to treat mail from drew@*.colorado.edu
