No. It is supported, and a common occurrence.  Feel free to read the

Yes. you will need to edit mm_cfg.py and modify the default host and url
values; then you will have to modify the existing host and url values in
your current lists - use the ~mailman/bin/fix_url.py utility (read that
file for examples, see the archives for other examples)

Note: Read ~mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py and copy any and all sections
that you want to modify over to mm_cfg.py

Yes.  You will need to change a setting in your mm_cfg.py file:

  # When set, the listinfo and admin overviews of lists
  # on the machine will be confined to only those lists
  # whose web_page_url configuration option host is
  # included within the URL by which the page is visited.
  # Only those "on the virtual host".  If unset, then all
  # advertised (i.e. public) lists are included in the
  # overview.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
