The umbrella list seems configured ok, but the two sublists must be
configured to accept mail targeted at the umbrella. two options here,
both involving settins inside "Privacy Options", under "Spam-specific
posting filters":

* set "Must posts have list named in destination (to, cc) field?" to "no"
(not recommended because it will open a huge spam window).

* or under "Spam-specific posting filters", add the umbrella address as
"Alias names (regexps) which qualify as explicit to or cc destination
names for this list."

either one of those should work.
