The access is now possible.  I made a mistake in Apache-config.  The 
links were correct, but the general access to the directory was 
denied for the base-domain of the server (see below).

But the difference between public and private archives still exists.  
If I define a list as being private, the link from the 
listinfo-page is pointing to the correct domain the list belongs 
to.  As soon as I switch the list to public, the link changes to 
the base name of the server (DEFAULT_URL_HOST in mm_cfg.py).

What do You mean with this?  I'm using postfix as MTA, all 
information about domains, account, ... are stored in a MySQL
