If this is true it means that your local MTA is configured
improperly (possible), OR that other remote MTAs are improperly
bouncing messages back to some other address than that in the
envelope (it happens).

This is not a Mailman thing in that Mailman auto-does the Right
Thing.  If the Right Thing isn't happening, its an MTA problem at
some level.  Have a look at the headers, and in particular the
envelope on your list postings.
