I'm tempted to answer with "dump Majordomo, it's crap", but that's probably
not the answer you are looking for. But I think it's good advice all the
I suggest taking the relevant entries out of /etc/aliases and putting them
in a single user's .procmailrc file instead (I've done this, works fine).
Then you can pre-sanitize messages using a simple procmail rule as described
in the sanitizer's manual.
Simply killing all attachments is relatively simple once you've got the
Sanitizer up and running.
