That's the eventual plan, but right now, muug.ca and muug.mb.ca are two 
distinct servers, hosted in different parts of the city.  The muug.mb.ca 
server is the one that's still handling e-mail, including the Mailman 
mailing lists.  (That's the reason e-mail to this list is still working 
despite the fact that muug.ca is currently shut down.)
