I've got what the Defaults file and the FAQ says is the default
setting for virtual hosts for my url/email hosts.

I'd say that if that even given a misconfiguration, if the
VIRTUAL_HOSTS lookup fails it should be falling back to
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST, not returning DEFAULT_URL_HOST which it seems to
be to me.

Nope, I checked quite specificly through the upgrade instructions and
the config code and removed all the old config options. Still couldn't
get it to use the DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST.

  # fgrep DEFAULT_URL ~mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py
  DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.pir.net'
  DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/'
  # fgrep DEFAULT_HOST_NAME ~mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py

My names config section is as I listed above, the rest is smtp,

If it shouldn't be necessary then I'm missing something since I can't
get that chunk of code to output the right answer... admittedly my
python is a bit rusty, though.
