Make sure you have

add_virtualhost('www.domain.com', 'domain.com')

in mm_cfg.py. Then run the first command above. fix_url sets the
webhost from the -u option and then tries to look up the corresponding
email host. If there is no add_virtualhost() for the web host, the
lookup fails and fix_url uses the web host as the email host.
