Correct - jason, you might try adding the line:


to the end of Mailman/mm_cfg.py.

By inhibiting VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW you set the overview pages to show
all the advertised hosts, not just the hosts which have a "preferred"
host name that's the same as the one by which people are getting to the
overview page.  If it works, then you may want to check the setting for
DEFAULT_HOST_NAME, also in mm_cfg.py (or Defaults.py in the same dir, if
it was never overridden).  You can also specify the preferred host name
on a per-list basis - it's one of the the options at the bottom of the
admin 'general options' page.
