And you set up "lists" to be a CNAME alias record pointing to 
"uglyhostname", right?  Well, don't do that.

Make sure that "lists" resolves directly to the correct IP address, and that 
the reverse DNS for that IP address also points back to "lists" as well as 

Search the archives for "CNAME" if you need more details as to why this is 
the case.  There might also be a FAQ Wizard entry on this subject.
