For example:

/etc/mail/aliases:

employees:              "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post employees"
<rest of your mailman aliases>

In virtusertable:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]    employees
<rest of your mailman entry maps>

[EMAIL PROTECTED]    unused
<snip>

Rebuild your table and when mail comes in for [EMAIL PROTECTED] it will
bounce with a user unknown unless you have an account named unused. :)
