This is mentioned in section 3.6 of the Majordomo FAQ at
If you are not "tech-y" you will need to have an admin type help you.
My favorite technique (not mentioned in the FAQ) was to use Procmail (
http://www.procmail.org/ ) to handle the -outgoing alias, and in the
Procmail config for the alias, put in a filter so that only messages
coming from the local Majordomo processor are passed through. I have
long since switched to Mailman but this technique should still work.
