Ok, I think I have it figured out. Not knowing Python was a hindrance but
having the source sure helped. :)
Turns out that SMTP was returning a 553. When I dug into it a bit on
Google, I saw that 553 was a rcpt host problem. Then I tried sending myself
some mail at another machine using my machine's SMTP and Lo! I was misusing
rcpthosts. I had a rcpthosts file and it had only me in it. So only I was
getting the mails from the list.
Problem solved. I wonder if having a slightly more verbose error message go
into the bounce log, such as 'SMTP returns 553' would make things easier to
diagnose. From the number of Google queries regarding rcpthosts on qmail,
I'm thinking this must happen pretty often. Just a suggestion.
