This is exactly the kind of thing that fix_url is supposed to fix. The
fact that it doesn't indicates problems with your host settings in
What you want to start with in mm_cfg.py is (with your own host names
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.example.com'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'example.com'
If you don't have that, do that, restart Mailman and run fix_url again

Then there is some non-obvious magic at work. If you don't have the
ScriptAlias for Mailman in httpd.conf, how is httpd getting to those
CGI scripts? You might get a clue from your httpd access_log.

Which I assume is still the Apple modified Mailman 2.1.5. Maybe these
are Apple questions.
