As at least one other person on mailman-dev told you, and I just told
you a few minutes ago, so you'll get this answer from me twice, your hostname
problems are an smtp issue, not a mailman problem.  Stop using CNAMEs for
mail if you care what the mail looks like; many mailers, sendmail in particular,
will, at either end, rewrite the cname into the canonical name.  Change the cname
to a duplicate a record with mx.
