If I understand correctly, you want to change a list's domains by doing
sonething like what's described at <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030592>,
but you still want mail to the old address and URLs with the old domain
to go to the list.

The URLs are just a matter of ensuring the old domain's DNS records (A,
CNAME, whatever) point to the current Mailman server.

For email, it's similar, although the records of concern are A and/or
MX, but you also have to ensure that the MTA on the server still
deliver's that mail to Mailman and in Mailman itself, you may need to
add the old address to Privacy options... -> Recipient filters ->
acceptable_aliases, although if the listname isn't changed, this last
step probably isn't necessary.
