more appropriate than the developers list.  However, I don't actually
read the -users group because of a lack of time.]

mm_cfg.py is for the *LOCAL* settings, and things in there are overridden by
values in mm_cfg.py.  However, when sending a message the preferred host
name is taken from the value set in the main config panel "Host name this
list prefers".

Have you been looking at your MTA with the same ferver that you've been
looking at Mailman?  My bet is that it's some sort of interaction with
the MTA, but you haven't mentioned what you're using.

 I had the one-arm-bandit fever, it was an arrow through my heart, that's all.
