It is a result of a rewrite rule in your web server which probably
looks something like

RedirectMatch /mailman[/]*$ https://example.com/mailman/listinfo

I'm far from expert on these things, but I think if you change it to
something like

RedirectMatch com/mailman[/]*$ https://example.com/mailman/listinfo

things will work as you expect.
