Mailman was never designed to be used in a hosted/ISP/virtual domain 
environment.  It was originally designed to be run by individual 
list/site administrators on their own machine, where they have full 
privileged command-line access to the entire system.  Running it in 
any other kind of environment is likely to expose areas where it does 
not perform so well.

Just read all the FAQ entries pertaining to cPanel, Plesk, Apple, etc....

We don't have a mailman-testers list.  We have mailman-users and 
mailman-developers.  If you're up to the task of discussing 
modifications to the Python source code, then you're welcome to 
subscribe to the mailman-developers list.

I don't know where proper handling of full virtual domains is going 
to be implemented.  I don't know if they're going to try to do that 
for Mailman 2.2, or if that's going to have to wait for Mailman3. 
But either way, it's going to be a little while before this is
