Serge, launch you favorite browser and get to your Mailman admin page 
(which is probably http://hostname/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/test, if you 
did as the docs tell you to do). After you login into the Administrative 
System, you see the General Options page. There, you go to the last 
option, the Base URL for Mailmen web interface. Change and apply as you 
wish, and you are done.
