Public bug reported:

Steps to reproduce:

Create two mail lists ml01 (hosted on domain dom.1) and ml02 (hosted on
domain dom.2)

Add user to ml01
$ add_members -a y -r - ml01
lkjhlkhlkh at wefqwefqwef.com
Subscribed: lkjhlkhlkh at wefqwefqwef.com

Notification email to the admin of ml01 will look as following:

Subject: Ml01 subscription notification
From: mailman at dom.2
To: mladmin00 at dom.1
Message-ID: <mailman.1.1287993063.7501.ml01 at dom.1>
Date: Mon, 25 Oct 2010 14:51:03 +0700

Subscribed: lkjhlkhlkh at wefqwefqwef.com

Apparently, host name of the mail list is not considered when composing the notification message.

I've checked 2.1.9 and 2.1.14 - both have the same bug
