[Mailman-Users] Question re. moving a mailing list

I have my original test mailing list "testlist at mischievous.us".  I copied it to be "testlist at peacock.place" and then aliased "testlist" on mischievous.us to go to "testlist at peacock.place".  This works fine.  My "General Options" has "Munge From", so the From address always says "testlist at peacock.place", when peacock.place is sending out the messages.  This works fine.

My issue is that the mail sent out says:

From: testlist at peacock.place
To: testlist at mischievous.us
Cc: <original sender email>

such that when I do a Reply-all, I get a message addressed as:

To: testlist at peacock.place
Cc: testlist at mischievous.us

I notice that I don't seem to receive any duplicate messages.  Perhaps Mailman is taking care of that for me, which is great!  I had expected that my configuration in /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py of:

MTA = 'Postfix'
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'peacock.place'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'peacock.place'
add_virtualhost('mischievous.us', 'peacock.place')
add_virtualhost('peacock.place', 'peacock.place')
add_virtualhost('www.peacock.place', 'peacock.place')

would have maybe told it that "mischievous.us" is another way of sending to this same mailing list and thus it wouldn't include the CC, but maybe I'm missing something?
