The only thing fix_url would "fix" is the domain of the sender of the
mail and the domain of the list-owner at domain recipient (much but not all
mail to owners/moderators is sent first to the list-owner at ... address
and only then resent to the actual owner/moderator addresses. Possibly
this domain was not valid or didn't have a -owner alias.

The procedure for adding a host name is
1) Put the appropriate add_virtualhost() in mm_cfg.py.
2) If Postfix is to generate virtual alias maps for this domain, add it
to POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS in mm_cfg.py.
3) To move any lists to that domain, run fix_url with the -u option on
I don't think there's any 'easier' solution.
Note, if you don't care about the web domain, you can set the host_name
on the list's General Options page instead of step 3.
