When you go to http://mail.mydomain.com/, where do you wind up? I.e.,
whats the URL in the address bar of your browser, and is the resultant
page an actual page or a 404?

What happens if you go to https://mail.mydomain.com/?

As far as apache2.conf, 000-default.conf, default-ssl.conf, and
mailman.conf having the same content, that may or may not be correct
depending on whether or not there are any directives therein which
contain explicit hostnames.

What other, host specific configuration do you have? (files linked from
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ if this is Debian/Ubuntu)
