Not supported by majordomo as such.  I'd suggest:
	vi /etc/mail/aliases # delete line for that list 
	newaliases
	man adduser
		create a dummy user called name of list
	man vacation
		set up auto responder
	man crontab
	vi /etc/crontab
		set up a periodic truncate script eg
			cp /dev/null /var/mail/list-name

Cheers,
Julian
