You can easily change the host name of a list via the web admin General
Options page

    Host name this list prefers for email.
    (Details for host_name)
Or, you can fix both host_name and the web_page_url to match your
current configuration with bin/fix_url.py. bin/fix_url.py is a
'withlist' script - run it stand-alone for instructions.

However, I don't understand why mail from Mailman would be sent by
root at phenom in any case. All mailman mail is sent with envelope from
LISTNAME-bounces at ... for some LISTNAME.
