Error already reported in a previous message, but here's the Reader's
Digest version. After going through the process of creating a new list
via the Web interface, the error message "unknown virtual host" is
given, and no mailing list is created.

What's relevant? As previously stated, if I knew all the info to
provide, I would have done so in the first place. I've since provided
everything I know about what's going on when I try to create a list.
The real problem here is, I know just enough about Mailman to be
dangerous, so before I get dangerous and break something even further
than it's already broken, I ask questions. If I provide insufficient
information for you to help solve my problem, it's totally and
completely unintentional. The expression "I don't know what I don't
know" comes to mind.
