At a minimum, you need an A record in DNS for lists.example.com with the
server's IP address.

In Mailman, it depends what you have in mm_cfg.py currently. If you have
something like

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'example.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'example.com'

you want to change the first two lines to

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'list.example.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'list.example.com'

If you have nothing in mm_cfg.py, add

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'list.example.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'list.example.com'

You can also add


ahead of any add_virtualhost line(s) to remove whatever was put there by

Then you need to run fix_url to fix your lists. See the FAQs at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/4030592> and <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030616>.
