As I tried to say in my prior reply (at
the domain of this address is the list's host_name attribute (near the
bottom of General Options). This is set at list creation time and
subsequent changes in mm_cfg.py don't affect it. You can change
host_name on the General Options page, but for a large number of
lists, use fix_url (see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9>).

Attachments with Content-Type other than text/plain don't make it to
the list.
