@Tfinc @JGulingan

It's possible and i added the alias on the mail server.

+# T98415
+search: wikimedia-search@lists.wikimedia.org

The second step was having to add it as an "acceptable_alias" in the web ui for this list, under "Recipient filters". I did that and sent a test mail. You can see it here:

Without also changing the list config the messages would be held for moderation with reason "message has implicit destination"

docs about that are here:
