Then this is an issue with the outgoing MTA. I can't tell you what you
need to do to fix it, but I can tell you that Mailman is already using
the host_name attribute as the domain in list email addresses.

If DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST are correct in Defaults.py,


in mm_cfg.py would be redundant and make no difference, but

add_virtualhost('dom2.ain', 'dom2.ain')

is required in mm_cfg.py, but it only affects newly created lists
unless you run fix_url. See

I'm sorry, but I probably know less about Postfix than you. Perhaps
someone else on this list can help, but the best resource for this
issue is probably one dedicated to Postfix.
