That sounds more like a problem in how you have your web server 
and/or DNS service configured than a Mailman problem.

We set up our domains such that www.domain.com and domain.com will 
point to the same files, as the "www" portion is really rather 
redundant.   There would have to be entries in DNS for both, as well 
as entries in your apache httpd.conf (or similar for whatever 
webserver you might be using) to achieve this.

I can reach any of our hosted lists using 
www.domain.com/mailman/listinfo/listname or 
domain.com/mailman/listinfo/listname as a result.

I'll leave the answer to this one to those who are more familiar with Mailman.
