Then you have to create a new list that has the name you want.

The _hostname part is cPanel. It is not in the list posting address,
but it is in the web interface. There's nothing you can do about it if
you use cPanel.

I want something more like "Company
>Name's special list".

That would not be a valid list name in any case. Keep in mind that the
list name is also the local part of its email address.

It sounds like what you are really talking about is the list's
'description' - "A terse phrase identifying this list."
