    hello everyone,

    I'm running a mailing list manager using the sendmail binary for outgoing mail, because smtp is too restricted to make the 300+ subscriber base workable.

    Trouble is, when people mail the list they get a 'personal' mail delivery error from the mail daemon if there happen to be any dead or over quota addresses on the list at that time. Using smtp (on smaller lists) seems not to do this.

    So, is there a specific request I can send to the hosting support to get these mail delivery errors specifically directed to an admin address? ie, 'if a delivery error is generated when someone has originally mailed to xyzlist then forward to admin@xyz rather than the original sender' ....

    I'm asking here before contacting the host in case any of you have tried this before and found it definitely is / is not possible to set up.

    many thanks,
    Lee
