The former URL looks like one that would come from a cPanel
installation or perhaps one that uses other patches mentioned in

Your 'new' URL is the correct one for a standard Mailman install. The
only reason to consider anything else is a requirement to support
lists with the same list name on different virtual hosts. Mailman as
distributed doesn't do this. See the above FAQ article for more info.
