[Mailman-Users] Changing site domain name

Non-routeable as in private address behinded a NATed proxying
firewall; the problem is seen if you go to any of the generic pages
e.g. lists.my.tld/mailman/listinfo, where the server instead of
referring to itself as lists.my.tld refers to itself as ip.ad.dr.ess -
if you go to a list specific page the URLs are as expected, except the
link for the overview page, which reads correctly as
lists.my.tld/mailman/listinfo but links to

URLs are also as expected in emails, as are email addresses. Like I
say, the list server functions properly, except for this insistence of
using the IP address in the base URLs.
