The webinterface simply works without any modifikations,
and the displayed listnames are correct.

Ok, that would be the same situation i`m already being in.
I will do it this way if i couldn`t find any solution to automaticaly
modify the alias/virtual-mm:

multiple Install and reformating of the alias + virtual-mm
file via a cron job. If a new list is added the suffix -domain will
be added to alias and virtual-mailman. See Example to understand what i

The test was successful and mailman still thinks its a single namespace.
The webinterface works without any mods.
I don`t know much about python. Were could I patch the alias generator
to include the domainname.


info:             "|/home/mydomain/mail/mailman post info"
would become
info-mydomain:             "|/home/mydomain/mail/mailman post info"

and virtual-mailman:

info at lists.mydomain.com              info
would become
info at lists.mydomain.com              info-mydomain
