I was able to configure Mailman and Postfix for the second domain.
I am running with a Mailman 2.1.9 package I built for Ubuntu Dapper.
The two domains are


and I have configured Postfix to accept both.

I created one test list via

     newlist --urlhost=lists-dev1.example.com \
             --emailhost=lists-dev1.example.com \

and the list was visable on the


web page.  All of the Mailman aliases for both sites are in one alias


In the configuration files, I have separate email hosts


I am not sure that I need both.    Mail to either nodename is delivered
to the list, even if the list is defined on the other nodename.

When I go to URL


I see the two lists I have created there, and I do not see the lists on
the other web page.  But I am able to get to the lists on the other web
page by knowing the name and entering that name in the URL.

What do I need to do to get separation of the two web sites - so that
one list is not accessible via the other web site?  Thanks.
