[Mailman-Users] List domain - was: Mailman list sends but doesn't receive mail.

The message I shared was sent by Mailman prior to the changes I made to the
mm_cfg.py file. Is it possible that the reason a.main.private appeared on
the e-mail was because the configuration file was edited by Apple's Server
Admin and displayed it instead of domain.com as it should ?

In other words, if the configuration file was as follows:

MTA = 'Postfix'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'a.main.private'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'a.main.private'

Would this generate the change in the e-mail sent by Mailman so that it
would display the server name instead of the domain name ?

Thank you again for your help.
