Here is a suggestion for sendmail that works great. Sendmail will
allow you to have incoming and outgoing rewrite rules. I've set up my
incoming rules for my mailing lists as such:
email@example.com error:nouser User unknown
This goes in my /etc/virtualusertable.text file that I make into the hash
file for sendmail. Here is how my aliases are set up:
test: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend -l test test-outgoing"
Try it out. Anyone who sends mail to firstname.lastname@example.org will get
a bounce, but resend can still get to it because it's not being received
by sendmail, just processed by it on the local machine.
