On this subject, why does creating a list with the host name set the web
interface? In no circumstance that I have ever seen are they the same,
except perhaps (in theory) for some hobbyist with a single computer?
$ newlist im at thejones.com
Sets the web interface to 'thejones.com' as well as the mail domain. This
doesn't make a lot of sense except in the hobbyist environment. I may be
off my rocker, but shouldn't this syntax set the mail domain and force you
to change the web URL manually?
