All the links are generated by mlist.GetScriptURL()

If VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Yes (the default), Utils.get_domain()
returns what the web server set in the environment as HTTP_HOST or
SERVER_NAME if there's no HTTP_HOST. This is normally set to the host
name portion of the URL that was used to access the page.

If you want to unconditionally return DEFAULT_URL_HOST, don't modify
Utils.py. Just set


in mm_cfg.py.
