Go to the list's General Options page and look near the bottom at "Host
name this list prefers for email.". Does this match second-domain.com?

What you ultimately need to do to configure all this depends on whether
or not you will have multiple Mailman domains or a single Mailman

If there is only a single mailman domain = second-domain.com you want
something like

DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.second-domain.com'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'second-domain.com'

in mm_cfg.py

and then run

bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url

to fix the web_page_url and host_name attributes of all the lists.

If you have more Mailman domains, it's more complex, but until you have
the proper host_name for your lists, genaliases won't create/update
