No. This won't work in a standard Mailman installation. It might work
if you have set

PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'http://%(hostname)s/mailman/public/%(listname)s'

in mm_cfg.py and put the appropriate alias for mailman/public in your
web server, but for defauly public archives you need to use something


Note that in msg and digest headers and footers, %(list_name)s and
%(_internal_name)s are equivalent, but %(_internal_name)s is a
deprecated usage (even though it is still in the default footer).

Note also that in the above, www.example.com could be replaced with
%(host_name)s, but only if the list's web and email hosts are the same
as %(host_name)s is the list's email host.
