Sorry to repost this, but nobody took the bait the first
time... I try it with a few more details, maybe the problem
was not clear in my initial mail:
I have the problem here that for security reasons, all
E-mail here from all the different networks within
university has to be relayed through one common E-mail
relay server (which is and has to be different to the
server that runs the lists). Authentication for the relay
server is via the From: field, so I need to be able to tell
mailman what to put in there (by default it is the list
name, plus things like <list>-request, <list>-admin, etc.;
these now need to go into the Reply-To: field, and the
From: field needs to be something like mailman at domain.com,
so that I then can get mailman at domain.com registered on the
relay server as a trusted E-mail source...).
I am sure that this problem has not come up for the first
time, and that it is well documented somewhere, but after
searching all documentation, FAQs, etc. for the better part
of three days now, I really would appreciate if somebody
can point me into the right direction. Also my apologies if
this problem is absolutely trivial, just give me some
I have tried things like "aliases" and "genericstable", but
the wrapper seems to be applied last, overwriting any
previous entry in the From: field.
Setup here is Linux 7.3 using sendmail and SMTP.
Thanks in advance!
