[Mailman-Users] virtual host problem - mail not originating fromsubdomain

Thanks for your offer to help.

For what it's worth, I created the lists after creating the subdomain and
virtual host. I created the lists with newlist and the appropriate --urlhost
and --email host options.

To be safe I tried running the fix_url script as you suggested with the same
results (no change.)

The contents of my mm_cfg.py are:

   from Defaults import *
   SMTP_LOG_EVERY_MESSAGE = ('smtp','%(msg_message-id)s smtp to %(listname)s
or %(#recips)d recips, completed in %(time).3f seconds. To=%(msg_to)s Return
Path=%(msg_return-path)s Sender=%(msg_sender)s Errors To=%(msg_errors-to)s')

The contents of Default.py that you requested are:

   DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'domain.com'
   DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'domain.com'

Thanks again for your help,

Run the following command in Mailman's directory:

  bin/withlist -l -r fix_url list2 -u www.subdomain.domain.com

If that doesn't fix it, report the contents of mm_cfg.py and the
settings for DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST from Defaults.py.
