I missed the sendmail error because of line-wrapping, and just saw the
"mail to xxx never gets delivered", and easily 99% of those errors
are "oh, no, I didn't enter the cron job".  Sorry to generalize;
your cron looks right to me.

So let's look at your actual problem without the noise around it:

Which machine is jupiter?
Which machine is remco.homeip.net?
Are they the same?

Which machine runs the mailman software?
Which machine has the alias on it?
When you "send a normal mail to test-admin...", are you doing it
from the same machine that Mailman is running on?
