Postfix question (mailman)

I fixed the relay thing by simply putting relayhost = mx1... into main.cf
But now I'm facing a new problem. Is there a way to configure the fqdn
which ist used in the sender address? I set the following line in
myhostname = lists.myhostname.de
Yet it seems as postfix looks up its own domain name via dns entry and
therefore attaches the domainname delivered by the dns to emails.
Unfortunately the dns entry differs from lists.myhostname.de.
