It's POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['lists.example.com',
     'lists.something.com', 'lists.somethingelse.com']

Yes, i had the same pb (excuse for my bad english...). My Mailman works
now. Add this in your mm_cfg.py :

VIRTUAL_HOSTS = {'lists.example.com':'example.com',

VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW is a var to confine list in a virtual host and not

VIRTUAL_HOSTS is use in the CGI script 'create' to set the var host_name
in the list config :

# Initialize the host_name and web_page_url attributes, based on
# virtual hosting settings end the request environment variables
hostname = Utils.get_domain()
mlist.default_member_moderation = moderate
mlist.web_page_url = mm_cfg.DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN % hostname
mlist.host_name = mm_cfg.VIRTUAL_HOSTS.get(
                  hostname, mm_cfg.DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST)

for example, in your config :

hostname = Utils.get_domain() = lists.something.com

mlist.host_name = mm_cfg.VIRTUAL_HOSTS.get(
                  hostname, mm_config.DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST)
                = VIRTUAL_HOSTS[hostname] if the map VIRTUAL_HOSTS is
                  set in you mm_cfg.py
                = DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST if the key 'hostname' isn't find
                  in the map VIRTUAL_HOSTS or if VIRTUAL_HOSTS isn't 

the last case (map not set) is your case... So add a correct
VIRTUAL_HOSTS in your mm_cfg like the one i give you in this mail.

bbye :)
