I have solved my problem by adding lists.domain.com as a CNAME to
host.domain.com in DNS. Then I was able to connect to
http://lists.domain.com and new mailing lists were created with the
proper settings. No need to use 'add_virtualhost'. Sorry to have
bothered you; hopefully this mail helps someone in the future to solve
his/her problems when he/she looks it up in the mail archives.
