We're running majordomo-1.93 on SCO OSR-5 using smail-3.1.29 in place
of sendmail.  I'm using the built-in list processing in smail to do
the actual delivery rather than the :include: syntax in /usr/lib/aliases:

test-list: "|/usr/local/lib/mail/majordomo/wrapper resend -p bulk -M 10000 \
           -l test-list -f test-list-Owner -h -s test-list-xxxxx"
test-list-xxxxx: test-list-xxxxx, test-list-archive

Where xxxxx is something less than obvious.  Smail doesn't put this in
any of the headers.  YARNTUSM (Yet Another Reason Not To Use Sendmail :-).

Cutting the space budget really restores my faith in humanity.  It
eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the
business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation.
