If you have set that up as the virtual host for those lists to use, then
you only need to toggle on setting in your ~mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py
file (look at the Defauts.py file for the explanations and syntax):

  # When set to Yes, the listinfo and admin overviews of
  # lists on the machine will be confined to only those
  # lists whose web_page_url configuration option host
  # is included within the URL by which the page is
  # visited - only those "on the virtual host".  When
  # set to No, all advertised (i.e. public) lists are
  # included in the overview.
