We try to create a setup where all mailing list appear to be on 
"listserver.research.pgs.com". They actually are on 

I configured the following in mm.py:
# Put YOUR site-specific settings below this line.
# DEFAULT_URL must end in a slash!
DEFAULT_URL         = 'http://listserver.research.pgs.com/mailman/'
DEFAULT_HOST_NAME   = 'listserver.research.pgs.com'
MAILMAN_OWNER     = 'mailman-owner@%s' % DEFAULT_HOST_NAME

All works fine, the URL and mail adresses in the body text of the mail 
generated  by the list is correct. However, the headers in the mails are 
refering to the actual hostname:

From: Lucas Hofman <lucas.hofman at pgs.com>
To: <Test at daphne.oslo.seres.pgs.com>
Sender: test-admin at daphne.oslo.seres.pgs.com

What did I do wrong?

We run postfix as MTA for incoming mail. Outgoing is going directly to 
another SMTP server.
