Dear mailman-users,

I have trouble setting the Reply-To:, and To: field right

I have some mailing lists on a server named boringname.foo.org
This server has virtual hosting and is therefore also known as
racing.foo.org and mychessclub.foo.org

racing.foo.org has a mailing list called f1 at racing.foo.org
mychessclub at foo.org has a mailing list called masters at mychessclub.foo.org

My problem is that I want mail to f1 at racing.foo.org appear to be
To:f1 at racing.foo.org and mail to masters at mychessclub.foo.org appaer to be
To:masters at mychessclub.foo.org.
On my system this mails allways comes with To:boringname.foo.org. Even
thow /var/log/mail says:

I am running Mailman 2.0beta5 (upgraded from 2.0beta2)

The mailing lists has correct "Host name this list prefers" and "Base URL
for Mailman web interface" settings.

When "poster" is selected for the option "Where are replies to list
messages directed? ...." (General options), this is what appear in pine
when reading the mail:
From: Vidar Langseid <vl at ez.no>
To: f1 at boringname.foo.org
Subject: hmm

when "This list" or "Explicit address" is selected in this option field,
this is what pine gives me:
From: Vidar Langseid <vl at ez.no>
Reply-To: f1 at boringname.foo.org
To: f1 at boringname.foo.org
Subject: hmm

If I select "yes" for the "Hide the sender of a message, replacing it with
the list address" (privacy options), pine says:
From: f1-admin at boringname.foo.org
Reply-To: f1 at boringname.foo.org
To: f1 at boringname.foo.org
Subject: hmm

What I would like to see is something like
From: Vidar Langseid <vl at ez.no>
To: f1 at racing.foo.org
Subject: hmm

From: Vidar Langseid <vl at ez.no>
To: masters at mychessclub.foo.org
Subject: hmm

The last thing I want to see is boringname.foo.org to appear at all.

Does anyone know to solve this problem ?
