This will only affect new lists as they are created.  If you wan't to change 
lists that already exist you'll need to log into the web interface for your 
list (if you can!) and change the value for the option:

	"Base URL for Mailman web interface. The URL must end in a
	single "/". See also the details for an important warning when
	changing this value."

(the last option on the General Options page)

if you have issues with the address that the lists are sending out in their 
emails then you need to change the value for the option"
	"Host name this list prefers."

(second to last option)

if you don't like these two methods you could always do some bin/withlist 
black magic.

ps. Mailman 2.0.6 is assumed since it wasn't specified.
