The bones of what you need to solve your problem are explained on this 
page of the Mailman FAQ, although it may not be immediately obvoius 
that this is the case:


also check the comments about the referenced MM variables in 

The URLs associated with a list are dynamically generated. If the 
virtual host associated with a list is changed per the FAQ, the 
consequence is that the URLs referring to the list/on the list web 
pages are changed. At one level, you question is a non-sequitur as the 
URL's are not stored in the way you may be thinking. That said, the 
web_page_url and host_name attributes of a list are what do the things 
you are thinking about.
