Where exactly do you see this? Is it in the list's admin General Options
-> host_name and the list posting address on the list's listinfo page?

If so, you can change the host_name and verify things like
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and add_virtualhost email hosts in mm_cfg.py and
maybe run fix_url. See <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030616>.

If headers of email messages are being rewritten, see
