I still don't get it.
My scenario is:
I - or somebody else - submit the mail from another machine by a mail command:
This goes into postfix at my domain.tld MTA.
It gets expanded via my ailas file /etc/postfix/aliases :
listname: :include: /some/file/in/filesystem
I am now trying in the alias file something like
listname: "|/user/sbin/sendmail -XV listnameinclude"
listnameinclude: :include: /some/file/in/filesystem
It does generate new from addresses, but not with info on the
names in the include file.
