[Mailman-Users] Mailman 2.1.X and HTTPS

I'm currently using 2.1.26. Recently I had LetsEncrypt add lines to my 
Apache configuration to redirect browsers from HTTP to HTTPS URLs. This 
morning I found that this doesn't seem to work well with Mailman 
database admin pages, I couldn't get Mailman to reject a held message 
until I commented out those Apache config lines. Is there a way to make 
Mailman work using HTTPS?

My reason for the redirect is that I'd heard that browsers, in 
particular Chrome, are going to start warning about insecure sites. Does 
this mean if any URL begins with HTTP people will have to click through 
warnings, or is just the fact that HTTPS is available good enough, even 
if the user or link didn't specify HTTPS?
