I have the list administrator and moderator fields populated with my email address. I have the “Host name this list prefers for email” set to pack186.com. People post to the list which are listname at pack186.com and it works. However when something is moderated, the sender is

See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Mailman+and+CPanel>.

If this were a standard GNU Mailman installation, I would say fix_url
can fix this (See <http://wiki.list.org/x/mIA9>).

cPanel Mailman has its own cPanel list creation process that "should"
set things up properly when a list is created in the pack186.com domain.
I can't say why that didn't happen here unless the list was created by
some means other than cPanel's process. At this point, the admins of the
host installation can probably fix this with fix_url, but there's
probably nothing you as a list owner can do unless you have shell access
to the Mailman installation on the server.
