The fact that you show the list name as list_domain indicates this is
cPanel, so the code you are looking at is not the actual code you are
dealing with.

However, in standard Mailman, and I don't *think* cPanel is different in
this respect, what you show above should work if Firstname and Lastname
don't contain special characters such as '.'. If they do, you need to
quote it as

%22Firstname%20Lastname%22%20<email at otherdomain>

and the %22 quotes won't hurt even if they aren't needed
