[Mailman-Users] Sub Domains and Domains

I am attempting to run mailman on a FreeBSD machine with multiple virtual

Everything is working great except that the list address I want is
"listname at lists.chard.net"  and it works great, I can send to it and it
works just fine.

The problem is that when the list sends out a post to members it drops the
subdomain from it's address and says, reply to "example at chard.net"

- I have an address record created for my lists.chard.net and a proper
virtual host for it.  
- The primary domain is also hosted, as a virtual host on the same machine
- I have set the "host name this list prefers" to "lists.chard.net"
- lists.chard.net is set up as my default url host and e-mail host in the
Defaults.py and mm_cfg.py files

- I have added these entries to my mm_cfg.py file:
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.chard.net'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'lists.chard.net'

Like I said, everything about the list is working great except that when a
post or administrative message is sent out by mailman it says to reply to
listname at chard.net instead of listname at lists.chard.net

Any advice would be great!
