This depends on what MTA you are using (postfix most likely) and whether
you have installed the virtual connector for Mailman.
If you look at the docs that come with Mailman you will find a file that
lays out step-by-step how to run virtual domains using a Postfix/Mailman
You can also check out the community based FAQ:
There is a lot of communal knowledge resting in those pages.

CanIt is a formulation of SpamAssassin. SpamAssassin is activated by
incoming mail - the mail is queued via the MTA and passed through
SpamAssassin then parsed out. So all the SA stuff should happen before
the mail is handed to Mailman. There shouldn't be a problem in mixing
the two - at least I've never had any problems there.

Check the rights, then check the entry in the http.conf. Most likely you
simply have the hostname defined differently in the config for the list.
Mailman only lets you see the list if the hostname for the webserver is
the same as in the config for the list. It's a common problem.
