I've got mailman and exim on my server for our mailing lists. When you send a message to it ( ), the message sender is This server is locally known as, with as an alias. is the servers internal name, while is what outsiders see. How can I get mailman to send from rather than foo?

Is this showing up in the From, Reply-To, or Return-Path headers? – Hyppy Jun 13 '12 at 15:40
Messages come from the sender, as the lists are set up. the reply-to address is incorrect. – Bocochoco Jun 13 '12 at 16:15

Check, please, in web interface for list what you have in in General section in host_name. You should have here. You can also explicit set reply_to_address in same section.
