Thanks! Works great. I should have thought of that one. I tried just
about everything else. :)
Some imap/pop clients let you put in "virt...@virtdomain.com" in as
username and "virtdomain.com" as your pop/imap server and they don't
get confused. Some others (such as netscape on linux), get very
and try to use "virtuser" as the username and "virtdomain.com" as the
server. My workaround to help these clients is to create a second
virtual user with username "virtuser-virtdomain_com" for them to log
in to the pop/imap server with. This is pretty kludgy. Is there a
better way to get around this client limitation?

For example, I'd like a list which was "sale...@foo.com",
rather than "list...@foo.com". Is this possible using
couriermlm? The man page seems to imply it, but I can't see
any information about how to implement it.
Use a "fake" virtual user, with userdb. Create a userdb record, put in
some dummy userid and groupid, give it a home directory, create that home
directory, using the same userid/groupid, and create a .courier and
.courier-default file in that "home directory". The mailing list
directory will also have to be created using that userid and groupid as
