This is the email address of the list owner. In the case of the site
list (mailman list), the list owner would normally be the Mailman site
administrator (you?).

You're not doing anything wrong. If you want http://mymailman.xxx.org
to go to the Mailman listinfo overview page, you need to set this up
in your web server. Assuming Apache, the easiest way to do this is add

RedirectMatch ^[/]+$   http://mymailman.xxx.org/mailman/listinfo

to the appropriate section of httpd.conf.
