It's Mailman 2.1b3...

We're using Exim v3.36...

Basically we can access everything by each virtual host name, but it
seems that in Mailman we cannot switch wich hostname is included in
the URLs that Mailman sends out in his email messages. Is that right,
or should that work.

We need to support at least 4 hostnames, so changing the primary
machine hostname is not an option.

Thanks for any input!
