   Here's what I did to handle address variations under majordomo.  I had the 
admin start an "hml-known" list containing the variant addresses and store it 
on the listserv machine.  Then, in the config file, I added that list to the 
main and digest lists so the robot will look at it too when looking for a 
match.  This way, people with more than one address, or addresses that can 
change according to what machine they're routed through, can post under any of 
their addresses, but only receive list mail at the address of their choosing.
