    Which is not interesting. You want to know what comes in, don't you?
    If you relay through RoadRunner's MTA then you most probably don't
    have to do anything special with your Postfix. ISP's relays don't
    expect much from the client, or 95% of internet users wouldn't be
    able to send out a single message.

    I thought your goal was to fix your Postfix so that
    talks to it. You *can't* test this if you relay throu RR's MTA.
    1) Comment out the relayhost parameter in $config_directory/
       and "postfix reload".
    2) Send a subscription request to
    3) Watch your /var/log/maillog for mail coming in from
       If majordomo sends you one of the two messages, it most probably
       sends the other one, too. Or at least I can't think of a
       situation when it wouldn't do so.

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see
