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, drew@colorado.edu 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
