[Mailman-Users] Shortening mailman sign-up page links

My Mailman list server is running on a linux server. 

I want to use a simplified URL to get to the list signup page. (I am afraid the underscore might be mistaken for a space in invitation emails when the email client automatically underlines links).

I am not a htaccess wizard and have tried both file and domain level redirecting with no joy. I thought the ".org" in the live URL might be the problem but apparently it's not. Thanks in advance.

Simplified URL: http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld <http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld>
Live signup URL: http://mldfamily.org/mailman/listinfo/i-have-mld_mldfamily.org <http://mldfamily.org/mailman/listinfo/i-have-mld_mldfamily.org>

These two don’t work:
RedirectMatch 301 http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld <http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld>(.*) http://mldfamily.org/mailman/listinfo/i-have-mld_mldfamily.org/$1

Redirect 301 http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld <http://mldfamily.org/i-have-mld> http://mldfamily.org/mailman/listinfo/i-have-mld_mldfamily.org

Thanks in advance.
