[Mailman-Users] Fw: Postmaster notify: Local configuration error - Host name this list prefers?

i get this error every time mailman sends out the password reminders.

"Host name this list prefers." for all the lists on this box used to be 
www.txraves.org and the server -did- accept mail for the host name
back then.  but i have since changed that option to just txraves.org
and removed www.txraves.org from the sendmail configuration so that 
it won't process mail for that host name(ie. blurr at www.txraves.org)

even though i've changed "Host name this list prefers" for all the lists 
over to just txraves.org its still using the old value when sending out 
reminders and choking.  

is there somewhere else in the mailman configuration as a whole,
or for each list, that i have overlooked?  how do i get rid of this
old host name that isn't valid any more?
