[Mailman-Users] Problems with Mailman set-up in Mac OS X Server and Server Admin.

Dear all,

I have been lucky enough to be helped by Mark Sapiro to get my installation
of Mailman fixed and my mailing lists properly configured. His help has been
crucial and I want to acknowledge publicly how grateful I am for his help.

We have experienced a problem that seems to be created by Apple's
implementation of Mailman and Mark suggested I contacted others more
experienced with Apple's OS X Server to obtain help.

In Mailman's mm_cfg.py file there are two lines that need to be as follows:

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'domain.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'www.domain.com'

The problem is that I have edited this file three or four times now and it
seems Apple's Server Admin or another OS X Server application continues to
change it back to the following:

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'servername'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'servername'

The problem with this is that every time someone looks at Mailman's listinfo
web page to see what lists are hosted by our server the title on the top has
the server name instead of the domain name for the lists. Instead of the
listinfo page displaying the proper title that should be "www.domain.com
Mailing Lists" it actually displays "servername Mailing Lists".

Does anyone know what might be causing this and hot to have this problem
fixed ?

Thank you,
