You probably have something like

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s:8181/mailman/'

in mm:cfg.py. At least that's the 'right way' to do it, but you may
have something like

DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.example.com:8181'

instead. In either case, remove the :8181. Then you'll need to restart
Mailman and update the actual web_page_url attribute of the lists
which you do with fix_url. Run Mailman's


for instructions.
