    Depends on how 'virtual' your setup is, and I suspect, it also depends on
the MTA.

    I have three domains sitting on one machine and mailman installed for each
one (meaning, three copies of mailman).  Each vhost has it's own web address,
and crontask.  And I can have the same list name under all three vhosts and it

    lists.yeehaw.net    -> test-list at ...
    lists.diarist.net   -> test-list at ...  (these don't actually exist)
    lists.pcraft.net    -> test-list at ...

    I run sendmail as my MTA, and using its virtusertable feature, combined with
aliases, each list knows where to go, what to do and what domain to use.

    I have lists that exist on two, or all three domains, same name.  And I have
lists that only exists on one of those domains.  It works like a charm....for
ME!  Doesn't mean it'll do the same for you.
