I'm not sure if this was just a mistype, or a misunderstanding.
You can run all virtual domains off one mailman installation as long
as the <listname> portion of <listname>@<domain> is unique across all
lists. E.g., you couldn't have admin at foo.com and admin at bar.com under
the same installation.

If administratively feasible, a good way to accomplish this would be
to assign all of your domains some unique tag, so that their lists are
FOO-admin at foo.com, etc.

That said, you should be able to alias admin at foo.com to FOO-admin and
admin at bar.com to BAR-admin, but you'd have to take special care not to
confuse the users. This was discussed earlier, I believe, but I don't
recall the final conclusion.

I'm afraid I can't answer your actual question, but perhaps this will
obviate the need for it to be answered?
