You can see the HTML that Mailman generates for that page by viewing
the page source in your browser.

Mailman doesn't specify any column widths for that table. It is the
browser that decides how to display it.

If you can say how you would want the HTML to be modified to produce
your desired result, I can suggest changes to Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py
and possibly Mailman/htmlformat.py to produce that HTML.
