I am using the "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix" setup (which I really like) and am also trying to get the sympa mailing list working. I have it set up but have run into a roadblock. In the documentation when you set up a new list you have to also setup some aliases (which naturally do not work correctly when all your aliases are abstracted to mysql). The syntax is along these lines #------------------------------ thelist: list alias created thelist: "| /usr/lib/sympa/bin/queue email@example.com" thelist-request: "| /usr/lib/sympa/bin/queue firstname.lastname@example.org" thelist-editor: "| /usr/lib/sympa/bin/queue email@example.com" obviously the aliases file doesn't have a problem running commands but (I assume but haven't actually checked it out) that the mysql db will choke on this. If this is the case, what are your thoughts on the next step?
