Thanks for the detailed explanation.

I did understand what you meant the first time, but I didn't realize that 
-- at least on my web host -- the list name is the full 
"listname_domain.name" (I originally tried your suggestion with only the 
listname, which apparently is why it was considered an unknown list).

I got it to work after you inspired me to look more closely at the URIs 
that Mailman uses.

Many thanks!
