Multiple Discussion lists

I’m not sure what the best way to set this up is so I am bugging you folks…

We have 5 discussion lists that we want to maintain. Is it best to have each list on its own sub domain or just ? Really I have no clue.

It’s been a while since I’ve played with the mailing lists here, but it makes more sense to create separate subdomains so that the e-mail addresses make a bit more sense, like,, and so on.


Let me clarify -

From the end user’s view, we want them to just receive and send emails to etc.

As far as what we use … I don’t care. But it seems like when I create and try to setup a second list, it trys to do everything at

Since it looks like it’s forcing you to create subdomains, why not set up forwarders at your main domain? I’m not sure how much control you have over the return address, though. Maybe it’ll let you set a Reply-to address.


Thats what I thought at first but the one click install wasn’t letting me create more than one subdomain for the lists.
