I would recommend moving your brad-test-digestify off of your list
address (brad-test) and onto your delivery address (brad-test-list).
That way, nothing gets into your digest that does not go out to the
brad-test: "|/usr/lib/majordomo/wrapper resend -l brad-test brad-test-list,nobody"
The ,nobody added inside the quotes of brad-test will hide your
delivery alias from being exposed in the message headers, and BOUNCE
messages are not delivered to the digestify address until after they
have successfully passed through resend.
