sorry Tom, first mail was replied falsely, wanted to send it to the 
list, not to you....

I made it simple,
i have put a directory "htdocs" in /home/mailman, where my mailman is 
installed (because of settings in suExec that does not allow to execute 
cgi's that are not in wwwroot), in the lists.<mydomain>.<tld> vhost i 
have DocumentRoot in /home/www/htdocs, in there is one html-File with 
this content:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=mailman/listinfo">
If the redirection does not work, click <a 

This is of course not a very fine solution but it works, and it works 
with virtual hosts too, just give every apache vhost for which you have 
mailinglists the DocumentRoot /home/mailman/htdocs.
