If the lists don't have conflicting names then you can just set the
"preferred domain" for each list to be the userdomain.  As an example
http://bikelist.org/mailman/listinfo, and
http://cascade.bikelist.org/mailman/listinfo all point to lists on my
servers, but act as if they are unique domains.  You can send a
message to any of the lists using any of the domains (ie, if there is
a list xxx at cascade.bikelist.org you could get to it by sending email
to xxx at phred.org), but I don't advertise that fact and users generally
don't figure it out.

If you have conflicting list names then things get more complicated
and you need to setup a mailman install per domain.  There is a lot of
information on this in the archives.
