I have two mailman servers setup and they seem to funtion differently
with respect to the host part of the mail address that is put into the
header.  I have one mailman server putting the 'hostname this list
prefers' hostname in correctly, but the other is not.  As far as I can
tell the two machines are setup the same.

Note:  I removed the headers I deamed unimportant. 

The one that works looks like this:

To: security_audit at cal.montage.ca
Reply-To: security_audit at cal.montage.ca
Sender: security_audit-admin at cal.montage.ca
Errors-To: security_audit-admin at cal.montage.ca
X-Mailman-Version: 1.0b7
List-Id: Montage Security Audit List <security_audit.cal.montage.ca>
X-BeenThere: security_audit at cal.montage.ca

The other (that doesn't work) looks like this:

To: test at a.calgary.linux.ca
Reply-To: test at a.calgary.linux.ca
Sender: test-admin at a.calgary.linux.ca
Errors-To: test-admin at a.calgary.linux.ca
X-Mailman-Version: 1.0b11
List-Id: A Test List <test.calgary.linux.ca>
X-BeenThere: test at calgary.linux.ca

Notice that the X-BeenThere header is correct but not the rest of the

Anyone have any ideas why this does this?

The nonworking system is running RedHat Linux 5.2, Sendmail 8.8.7,
python 1.5.1, apache 1.3.3.
