    Hello to you all,

    Facts: Mailman v. 2.1.5p1
    Issue: When creating a list, the confirmation mail does not contain the originator domain info, but localhost.localdomain.

    Code:
    The mailing list `list_example.com' has just been created for you.  The
    following is some basic information about your mailing list.
    
    Your mailing list password is:
        *************
    You need this password to configure your mailing list.  You also need
    it to handle administrative requests, such as approving mail if you
    choose to run a moderated list.
    
    You can configure your mailing list at the following web page:
        http://localhost.localdomain/mailman/admin/list_example.com
    
    The web page for users of your mailing list is: 
        http://localhost.localdomain/mailman/listinfo/list_example.com
    
    ... and the mail comes from mailman-admin@localhost.localdomain

    Is there any config file to be modified?

    Thank you

    Thanks for the answer,
    however, this solves only part of the problem, since I host a number of (virtual) domains.
    I cannot hardcode DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and DEFAULT_URL_HOST variables, without getting into conflict with the orher domains.
    I think the issue is deeper, into some variable asignation during mailing list creation.

    Anyway, thanks again, this solution is better than localhost.localdomain.

    nickb, thanks again ... but:

    I've pretented to be one of my customers and created a mailing list from cPanel.
    There are no options in cPanel: either you create a mailing list, either not, so the customer got a [localhost.localdomain] message. Creating the mailing list automatically sends the problematic message.

    AFTER you create the mailing list (and get the erroneous message), you can administer it and play with the settings.

    This [localost.localdomain] issue appears only in the 'Your new mailing list:' message. otherwise, the list is created ok, in the corresponding (real) domain, and the list site is also created into the right position.

    I hope I'm not too annoying.
