Mailman host_name setting

apps

#1

Hello,

I would like to hear if anybody here has tried changing the host_name setting in mailman (General Options, Additional settings) from lists.viff.dk to just viff.dk.

I just tried and it seems to have the intended effect: Mailman uses viff.dk instead of lists.viff.dk as the sender domain when subscribing. Because of the convenience addresses automatically set up when making a new list at DreamHost, replies to the administrative mails works too, at least I could subscribe.

But is it supported? If it works, then why isn’t this the default setting for new lists?

Thank you for any insights!
