[Mailman-Users] TO address munged

Hi, I've browsed the archives for an hour, can't find an answer.

I'm getting the MX loop error, but it is _not_ related to local domains, 
these are remote domains that I have nothing to do with.

Mailman seems to be appending my domain to outgoing emails, e.g.

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
<user at domain.com>
    (reason: 553 5.3.5 system config error)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
553 5.3.5 domain.com.ipro.us. config error: mail loops back to me (MX problem?)
554 5.3.5 Local configuration error


You can see that Mailman has added my domain (ipro.us) to the delivery address
user at domain.com, trying to send to user at domain.com.ipro.us 

If I open the attached msg that Mailman had sent the TO line is user at domain.com.ipro.us 

While moving the list to Mailman, I had to "Mass Subscribe" a bunch of people. I
don't know if that's relevant.

I checked about 20 of these addresses in the list management interface, they seem fine.

Any ideas? I'm running freebsd and sendmail on Verio VPS servers, if that helps.
