So from what you are saying, you are running Mailman in several domains, at the root of the domain (for example, listname at example.com instead of listname at lists.example.com), and example.com is typically hosted off a separate web server?

Instead of using redirects, have you looked at using Mod_Proxy to do the redirection at the backend on the web server hosting domain.com?
