Is www.sitename.com the server's hostname, or the ServerName of the 
VirtualHost mailman is served from? Make sure you have

<Directory /home/mailman/archives>
   Options +FollowSymlinks

in your Apache config for the VirtualHost mailman is served from. I'm 
not sure what to do about inconsistent URLs as I am having the same 
problem myself. I don't know what to do about the error response when 
sending to a list either.
