You need to edit two of the fields near the bottom of the General
Options tab in the web-admin.  Change those domains to use "mike.com". 
That will will help.

You don't need to do that, the changes above will simply change how the
list treats itself (it will now use mike.com).

Note: if you are using Sendmail as the MTA then the outbound mail will
all be tagged as coming from whatever the host is currently named.  You
can force naming to be one way or the other, but the only way to force
outbound mail to use a different domain name is to use the Generics

The archives cover this very thoroughly and many times.
