Not exactly. If you have a list named "something" that is currently in
the lists.service.osu.edu domain, you could move it to the network.org
domain, but the whole idea of virtual domains in Mailman is that the
various domains are disjoint (although currently list names still have
to be globally unique).

If you just want to be able to mail to something at network.org in
addition to mailing to something at lists.service.osu.edu and have either
address go to the list, this would all be done in Postfix and DNS.

In order to give you a recipe to do what you want, I'd need more
detailed information. We would need to have a dialog to determine what
you want and what can be done. Unfortunately, I will not be available
to do this until June.
