If sendmail is your MTA, you can use the virtusertable to reject messages
sent directly to your -list aliases.
org error:nouser User unknown
Virtusertable has to be enabled in the sendmail.cf, and you will need to
use makemap to create a hash or db from the raw virtusertable for sendmail
to recognize and use it.
It is also better to use some other (unknown, or at least not to popular)
extension to your list delivery aliases, and prevent sendmail from adding
the name of the alias to "Received:" lines by appending a comma "," or
",nobody" to your delivery alias too. The latter assumes "nobody" to be
and alias to /dev/null.
