I would not be at all surprised if the fault is a misconfigured MTA
which is inappropriately replacing the external domain name with the
internal domain name, for e-mail addressed to external clients.
Since there is this schizophrenia with regards to the domain names
used, I'd recommend keeping all that completely outside of Mailman.
Only worry about one given set of internal domain names for everyone,
then let the MTAs to the outside world be responsible for handling
all internal/external domain name conversion in both directions.
You'd probably have to fix up the web server system in the same way.
The other alternative is to logically put the Mailman server in the
external network and have it know nothing about the internal users,
and then let the MTAs and web proxy servers handle the translation
the other way.

Trend Micro has announced that they will cancel the stop.mail-abuse.org
mail forwarding service as of 15 November 2006. If you have an old
e-mail account for me at this domain, please make sure you correct that
with the current address.
