The link is correct:
<a href="http:/lists.python.mydebian/mailman/admin">

Already done, the problem is not here.

I have done tests with lynx, Mozilla, Firefox, Opera;
with all of them the browser add a lists.python.mydebian after the
domain name...

Moreover in a first installation (I have installed and removed the
mailman package up to 3 times for testing purpose) all was ok (but the
configuration was a bit different).
