I assume you are using Mailman version 2.0.x... 
In the web admin under General options near the bottom, change the
website address to the virtual website address (but first make sure that
you can access the admin for the list using that virtual website

You really want to move over the the latest Beta release (soon to be
production): 2.1.6.  This version has much better handling of virtual

Also, if you are using Sendmail, you should consider changing your MTA
over to Postfix which also makes handling virtual hosts much easier.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
