By originates, do you mean sending SMTP host name, host name in
HELO/EHLO, or host name in MAIL FROM?

The only one of these that has anything to do with Mailman is the
envelope sender (MAIL FROM).

There is only one 'mailman' site list. You can make it's host_name
groups.hlacik.eu if you want.

This won't work for all messages. It will work for some, but the rest
will come from DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST (or the email host that corresponds to
DEFAULT_URL_HOST is its add_virtualhost).

Mailman is not going to send with envelope from 'noreply' unless you
modify the code to make it do so, but unless you made very "special
case" modifications, you'd break automated bounce processing
