I have already done this, but it hadn't changed anything.  When I send an 
email to my list list at lists.science.uts.edu.au it gets processed without 
any problems, but the "To" address gets changed to 
list at zeppo.science.uts.edu.au - zeppo is the machine name, lists is the 
alias I want it to use.  The "Sender" is 
list-admin at lists.science.uts.edu.au and if I email from the machine it 
comes from user at lists.science.uts.edu.au, so somewhere Mailman is getting 
that the name is zeppo.science.uts.edu.au whereas sendmail's happy using 
lists.science.uts.edu.au - any ideas why?
