Hmm. No I hadn't run this although the FAQ seems to refer to MacOS X...

# bin/withlist -l -r fix_url  sandbox -u lists.ntg.equifax.com -v
Importing fix_url...
Running fix_url.fix_url()...
Loading list sandbox (locked)
Setting web_page_url to: http://lists.ntg.equifax.com/mailman/
Setting host_name to: lists.ntg.equifax.com
Saving list

I have done this now and it still seems to behave the same way.

I am still getting mail sent to the list as being from the real hostname
not a virtual host as specified in the 'host name'.

Do you know of any documentation that explains how addresses are used by
Mailman ? I'm just not sure whether this is my sendmail config or if it
is down to Mailman. Do the emails sent from Mailman have a fully
qualified user at host email address in the sender and reply-to ?

BTW I should point out this is using the RPM supplied from RedHat and is
version 2.1.1-5
