I believe you will need to perform a URL rewrite which special cases the
component "mailman" when following the "lists" component. This type of
functionality is available in the mod_rewrite module.


Practical examples here:

Be aware that mod_rewrite is not an easy module to master, at a minimum
you will need a solid understanding of regular expressions.

I think what you need to do is craft a rule which first attempts to
match /lists/mailman and if that matches terminate the rule processing
outputting the matched URL, else continue to process and rewrite the URL
to the per list URL.

BTW, rewrite != redirect
