    Some folks have pointed out that by setting the host_name value on each
list makes it work fine for vhosts.  I've never tried it.  I went a different
route instead: different installations, on the same machine, same user ID, just
different directories.  It works for me.  <list>@domainA.com is different than
<list>@domainB.com (where <list> is the same name and both domains are hosted
on the same physical machine)
