While this likely doesn't help, this is almost guaranteed not to be
a Mailman problem, but is instead a QMail config problem.  For some
reason wither QMail doesn like mail arriving on the localhost
interface (test with a hand-driven telnet session delivering mail to, or there's something about the source address it doesn't
like (sniff the packet stream and see *exactly what's being sent and
if anything is even mildly curious).  And no, sorry, I don't know
what or even possibly why: I see little reason to put up with DJB
and so prefer other MTAs.
