add_virtualhost('www.abc.com', 'lists.abc.com')

in mm_cfg.py where www.abc.com is the host name you use for web access
for the abc.com domain.

Currently (Mailman 2.1), you are restricted in that you can't have the
same list name in both domains.

You also need to configure your web server and MTA appropriately.

See bin/newlist --help for info on creating lists in the abc.com
domain. For web create, visiting the 'create' page on the www.abc.com
host will create the list in that domain.
