[Mailman-Users] Issues With "Host name this list prefers for email."

I recently configured virtual domains on my Mailman/Postfix set-up.  It's 
mostly running fine, but there are a couple of small details that I think 
might be related to the "Host name this list prefers for email" setting.

As you can see from the sample header from a message sent to the Test5 list 
(below), some of my domain/host names are different from others--despite 
the fact that "Host name this list prefers for email" is set to the virtual 
domain, www.cinemastudies.org.  Everything should point to 
www.cinemastudies.org , and almost everything DOES, with the exception of 
two lines.

The first header problem is:

To: test5 at jbutler4.tcf.ua.edu

The virtual domain, www.cinemastudies.org, is an alias for the canonical 
name, jbutler4.tcf.ua.edu.  Is there a way to change this from 
jbutler4.tcf.ua.edu to www.cinemastudies.org in the TO line?

The second is:

List-Archive: <http://www.tcf.ua.edu/pipermail/test5>

The list archive actually works properly and is accessible at 
http://www.cinemastudies.org/pipermail/test5/ .  Any thoughts as to why the 
header is confused about this?
