I don't understand what you mean by 'access to the web interface is done
via "pipermail" interface'.
Can you give an example with actual URLs and maybe web server config

I'm a bit confused here too. That said, suppose you have two external
web domains, web_domain1 with list1 at email_domain1 and web_domain2 with
list2 at email_domain2. Of course you could have more domains and more
lists per domain, but in this simple case you would put in mm_cfg.py
(it's OK if different web domains have the same email domain.)
Then to associate web_domain1 with list1, you run
bin/withlist -r fix_url list1 -u web_domain1
and similarly for other lists.
