For purposes of discussion, let's say the "host name this list prefers
for email" is example.com.
Then, what I am saying is that if the URLs for your list's web pages
should be of the form http://example.com/mailman/..., the list's
hidden web_page_url attribute should be 'http://example.com/mailman/'
and then %(listinfo_url)s will produce
http://example.com/mailman/listinfo/listname and %(optionsurl)s will
Now there are several ways to accomplish this, but first you should have
in mm_cfg.py. Then you can run
bin/withlist -r -r fix_url listname -u example.com
to fix the list.

No, although I know that some people who run Apple's Mac OS X Server
Mailman forgo Apples GUI and use Mailman's web admin interface instead.
