[Mailman-Users] Email domain issue with virtual hosting

So I looked through the archives and couldn't find a solution to this.  
Google was no help, either.

I have Mailman setup on www.justracing.com, which is also the 
mailserver (sendmail) for the domain of the same name.

I have volunteered to host a mailing list for the Golden Gate Chapter 
of of the BMW Car Club of America on their domain: ggcbmwcca.org

I have a virtual host set up in mm_cfg.py as follows (per the FAQ entry 
for changing the domain name):

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.ggcbmwcca.org'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'lists.ggcbmwcca.org'

The list works beautifully.  All the URLs are correct.  Life is good on 
this end.

However, administrative emails are sent with the following headers:

From: 	announce-owner at justracing.com
Subject: 	Announce post from jimmy at joe.bob requires approval
Date:	April 25, 2004 4:09:57 PM PDT
To:		announce-owner at ggcbmwcca.org

Note the From address is of the wrong domain (the domain of the server, 
not the domain of the virtual host).  Subscription confirmations have 
the same problem.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Many thanks!
