I use MailMan (2.1.11 / Debian i386 / Postfix ) since some years in a
multi domains environment.

I started to use it using a domain now destroyed (ie. dom0.org) , I've
updated /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py accordly :

lists.dom1.org replaced old lists.dom0.org

# Default domain for email addresses of newly created MLs
#  DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.dom0.org'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.dom1.org'
# Default host for web interface of newly created MLs
DEFAULT_URL_HOST   = 'lists.dom1.org'
# DEFAULT_URL_HOST   = 'lists.dom0.org'
# Required when setting any of its arguments.

Despite my new settings, MailMan use this old domain in the header as

Sender: mailman-bounces at lists.dom0.org

In the montly password reminder, the well configured mailers reject the mail

  <mailman-bounces at lists.dom0.org>: Sender address rejected: Domain not
    found (in reply to MAIL FROM command)

The from: header is correct using an active domain.

Grepping /etc/mailman or /var/lib/mailman I dont found any instances
of this old domain in files (except in archives)

Thanks for helping.
