[Mailman-Users] Two questions ref virtual hosts and mailman

Question 1:

Current situation:

I have now pretty much a working solution for this situation (postfix
and mailman installed with Ubuntu packages on 64-bit 10.04 LTS (Lucid
Lynx) :

  1 server
  1 "real" domain: realdomain.com
  2 virtual domains: virtual-1.org

All are accessed successfully through SSL/TLS (https).

Desired situation:

I can get new lists at the virtual domains okay, but here's what I
would like to do: change the mailing list virtual domains to:

  2 virtual domains: lists.virtual-1.org # this is my default domain for mailman

BUT present the lists to the users as, say, info at virtual-1.org

I had some mixed success early on, but other problems intervened.  Now
that the other problems have been solved, I want to blow everything
away and start over but only if the "Desired situation" is feasible:

Question 2:

Can I also do this on the real domain:

Create a new subdomain and mailing lists:

  lists.realdomain.com <= let postfix and mailman handle this as a
virtual domain

And also as desired for "Question 1,"

  BUT present the lists to the users as, say, news at realdomain.com
