[Mailman-Users] 'advertised' setting being ignored (problem in 2.1?)

If I am not mistaken the URL in the list DB must match the URL for the list.

So if I move a list from one server to another (different URL's) I have to run 
bin/fix_url to update the URL in the list DB.

One way to check is the run bin/dumpdb, let it scroll, at the bottom will be 
the list URL, if it does not match the URL your using run bin/fix_url and see 
if the problem goes away.

Hope This Helps!
