You can do it this way, but it's not the cleanest solution.  It also won't
work in an environment that already does masquerading improperly (if DM
is set to hostname.example.com in your sendmail.cf, for example).  In a 
case like that, the only thing that host_name changes is the value in 
your List-Id: and X-BeenThere headers.

If you have no control over your sendmail.cf, then it's definitely worth
trying host_name (although I know that at my site and several others this
feature is commented out to prevent user ignorance from messing things

But if anyone ever changes the masquerade host in sendmail, it will 
immediately override any of the settings specified in your Mailman config.
For this reason I'm in favor of changing things only through sendmail when
possible -- a canonical setting makes administration so much easier.

I'll try...  :)
