I was hosting some lists on one of my domains.  Later they got their
own domain and I had to move their lists over to their domain.  All
I did was to go to the first page of the web administration, almost
to the bottom of the "General Options" there are two fields, "Host
name this list prefers." and "Base URL for Mailman web interface.". 
Of course, this assumes that you have your machine set up to
send/receive mail for the new domain.

Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone.
