[Mailman-Users] listhost vs hostname vs host_name

so we have an automated setup between a CMS forum and mailman to create
lists, having a little confusion about what values to pass config_list
trying to understand what these three values govern: listhost vs
hostname vs host_name
right now we set -e emailhost via newlist, this has resulted in some
incorrect data displaying in emails. this seems to set the listhost
value but not host_name or hostname.
we are attaching all lists to a subdomain. so like somelist at sub.domain.com
emails from the lists setup however are coming from
somelist-bounces at domain.com and in the emails the post to email address
is give as somelist at domain.com.
postfix and mailman however are working find at accepting emails to
somelist at sub.domain.com and processing them through the lists.
so I thought, hmm... maybe we need to set hostname to 'sub.domain.com'.
but I also see that the templates for emails have 2 different hostname
params: hostname and host_name.
can someone explain the differences between all there and how to get our
list configurations right using the commandline commands for our
oh PS - is there a command also to patch our existing lists to set the
host name values correctly. thanks
