Check your ~mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py file  (and your Defaults.py file) for
your site.
# When true, Mailman will consider user at host.domain to be the same address
# user at domain.  If set to 0, Mailman will consider user at host.domain to be
# same address as user at Host.DoMain, but different than user at domain.
# will always be case preserved, and host parts of addresses will all be
# lowercased.

# When set, the listinfo web page overview of lists on the machine will be
# confined to only those lists whose web_page_url configuration option host
# included within the URL by which the page is visited - only those "on the
# virtual host".  If unset, then all lists are included in the overview.
# admin page overview always includes all the lists.


So copy these settings into your mm_cfg.py file and then modify them as you
see fit!
