> I know that this is intentional and technically the right thing, because this list is
now user@velocity and user-subscribe@velocity, however that address is referenced in numerous
articles, books and web pages and just sending out a "this does not exist" doesn't send the
right message to a potential user.
> Can we either get an alias (just as with velocity-user@jakarta) or a more meaningful
error message (that would be preferable but probably harder to do (don't know about qmail,
with sendmail you could just add a line to the access file)?
