Yes i had DNS not setup quite right. a rough CNAME for the list which made
mailman web pages work but resulted in dropping the lists part of domain
when passing thru mail server.
Added A record for web and MX for mail and its all ok.

Ok what i mean here is when I post to the list i only want list members to
see To: news at lists.domain.com
what they are seeing is To: somebody at theirdomain.com CC:
news at lists.domain.com
what i want is like this list where when you post all you see is To:
news at lists.domain.com

Everything else seems to work, it sends my footer, rejects non moderater
postings etc.
