As part of the alias.
test: "|/usr/local/majordomo/demime '== /usr/local/majordomo/wrapper resend
-l test test-list,nobody'"

Majordomo doesn't use it per se. The mail is run through demime before
getting passed to the wrapper. See above alias...

8 (It certainly used to be harder than it is now.)

It will work straight out just fine if you do your homework...

It strips it - yes...

Don't know of one.
You should scrub the majordomo archives for demime discussions,
particularly if you use sendmail with smrsh enabled.

What if this weren't a hypothetical question?
