[Mailman-Users] Problem with localhost.localdomain

Check the output when running ./configure, looking for "checking for 
default mail host name" and "checking for default URL host component" - 
on my system, they gave me the resolved hostname for my dynamic IP 
address (blah.client.attbi.com) instead of my domain. It was using the 
attbi address for web page links (like to the list archive).

I added --with-mailhost=domain and --with-urlhost=www.domain to the 
./configure command and that corrected the problem. Now those links 
reference my domain name instead.

HTH, Jim
