The domain of the mailman list's email address on the listinfo overview 
page is the 'email host' that is associated with the 'url host' that is 
the host name of the URL used to access the page in the VIRTUAL_HOSTS 
dictionary which is built with add_virtualhost('url host', 'email host') 

If you have only one web host and one email host, these should be 
assigned to DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST in mm_cfg.py, and 
these assignments should be followed by


Then when you go to http://urlhost/mailman/listinfo/, the mailman list 
address you see will be mailman at emailhost. Then as long as that list's 
owner is its only member, you get what you want.
