Okay, we've found out something:

  The problems are with your MTA, not with Mailman.  

Now the problem is that your MTA installation seems that it might be
unreliable.  You might want to check MD5 signatures of your
installed binaries against virgin copies.

  Drop that sort of thing in a file.  Select it.  Paste into xterm
  that is telnetted into your MTA.


All that's left for you to do is to handle the SMTP protocols, not
the data.
