Hi Mark,

One thing that confuses me, is that I sent email to
ricardo1-owner at lists.americasnet.com but as you see the smtp transaction
used mailman-bounces (so it didn't use the listname, 'ricardo1')

But unfortunately that's not the case... The config for the list has
'lists.americasnet.com' for the hostname

What should DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST be? I have it as localhost because I thought
this is the host mailman uses to _connect_ to the email server, therefore
it's set to localhost.
