This is the punisment for a newbie <G>. I should have formulated
more accurately... This is 50% of what I'm after. The other part I'm 
looking for is with subscriptions.

A user sends his subscribe to '' (which is rerouted to and that last one is what he gets a 
reply from... This is bewildering for some (especially if people send 
incorrect subscriptions). 

So, part 2 of my question is: is it possible to masquerade majordomo 
as multiple names ( and 
and if so, how?

Thanks again!
