You do not say what how you are applying your posting restrictions for the 
list or indicate why you think this single user's posts are going via the 

Assuming you are using MM 2.0.X

Set moderated to No, member_posting_only to Yes and leave the posters field 
empty on the Privacy Options page of the list admin web GUI for the list 
concerned. This should let all the list's members post to the list without 
going via the admin, regardless of the domains of their e-mail addresses. 
Non-subscriber postings to the list will go to the admin as will any others 
qualified by your Spam-specific filters etc.
