I was just working on this, and I have:

    DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.mydomain.net'

And this does not work.  I'm still seeing the old internal URL:


I'm not sure what is wrong - I searched the FAQ on this one and this 
seemed to be the right solution.

To reiterate:  our mailman server is on an internal network - the 
external website is configured to proxy http://www.ourdomain.com/mailman 
to the internal host.   The URLs showing up on the admin page (for 
example) are still reflecting the internal host name, which is incorrect 
for what we're needing.
