With lines 2 and 3 actually being one line in the alises file.
And, obviously, I have an archive directory ("MHonArc/test") to which
MHonArc-processed messages are immediately posted; and I've installed a
copy of mhonarc in the majordomo directory, so as to use wrapper to invoke
it. (I should point out that I'm hosting time-limited, low-volume lists --
per class, per semester or year -- high-volume lists would not want to
send the output straight to mhonarc probably; or, at least, would want to
split up the archive from time to time).
As for dealing with SMTP headers, I'm pretty sure that's something you
want to let MHonArc handle with its rcfile -- and MHonArc 2.1 does a
rather nice default job of it.
