If you want to use just one default hostname for all your mailman lists,
then you do not have to deal with virtual host setup for mailman. 
Follow the directions for the link above to edit the mm_cfg.py for
'Changing hostnames' but skip the virtual hostname section.  This
ensures that all *future* lists that you set up will use that hostname. 
Then log in to the adminstrative web interface for *each* list that you
have already created and change the hostname on the General Options page
(towards the bottom) to the hostname you want to use
(www.yourhost.com).  That's it!
