Assuming MM 2.0.x: Checking and possibly changing the last field (Base URL 
for Mailman web interface) on the General Options page of the web GUI for 
the list concerned may help; just heed the warning in the detailed 
explanation for the field. I think the url and hostname used in respect of 
a list are extracted dynamically from this list attribute and the value it 
has is set at list creation time to the values obtained from 
mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py. I believe that subsequent changes in 
mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py values do not affect existing lists.
