[Mailman-Users] How do I set up a vritual host on Mailman?

I manage mailing lists for several domains. I have just finished 
installing Mailman 2.1b4 and I having trouble finding documentation on 
virtual hosting. The information in the Defaults.py files isn't getting 
me there.

I wanted the list to send e-mail with the virtual domain in the mail 
addresses. This part works fine and was configurable from the web 

I would like the web administration interface available from the 
virtual domain's web space (i.e. 
http://virtualdomain.com/mailman/listinfo/list1). This mostly works, 
however, there are several links in the web interface that link back to 
the "real" web space (i.e. 
http://machinehostname.com/mailman/listinfo/list1). I do not know how 
to fix this.

The last issue has to do with the welcome message. The addresses in the 
message reflect the virtual host, but the URL's do not. Again, I do not 
know how to fix this.

My mm_cfg.py file contains the following directives:

	add_virtualhost( 'virtualdomain.com', 'virtualdomain.com' )

I'm pretty sure that I need more than this, but I don't know what. Any 
help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
