hhmm.. Something is strange.. The other thing I noticed, in the bottom
left of each HTML page to go with mailman, it still lists the list info
on portal.navidec.com.. I can't even find the html file or template
that has that footer assigned in it. The rest of everything (Like, welcome
messages, info pages, list discuss.pentax.com)

The digest correctly mails out from discuss.pentax.com, but regular
posts do not. I have grep'd for 'portal' in every directory under
/usr/local/mailman, I found no matches. 

As I said before, I tried changing my hostname to discuss.pentax.com just
to test, and I tried changing sendmail's config to think it was on
discuss.pentax.com, also added it to my /etc/hosts.. 

And still, no go.

I even modified firewall to try and re-write the from and to headers,
and it wouldn't do it (that is probably because I may not have done it
