What I'm getting is you want each list to have it's own domain and
associated IP address - e.g., list1 at l1.example.com,
list2 at l2.example.com, etc.
You can do this in a couple of ways. If all lists share a common web
host domain, just set the host_name on each list's General Options
page to the desired email host (or set it with bin/config_list), and
make the appropriate changes in your MTA.
I gather that you don't want a separate web host domain for each list,
but if you did, you would need to put things like
in mm_cfg.py and run
bin/withlist -l -r fix_url list1 -u web1.example.com
bin/withlist -l -r fix_url list2 -u web2.example.com
to update the list configurations, and put
VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off
in mm_cfg.py so all the lists will appear on the listinfo and admin
overview pages regardless of invoking domain, and of course make the
appropriate MTA and web server changes.
