Because List 1 doesn't see its name (or a name that it recognizes as
belonging to itself) in the To: or Cc: headers of the messages coming
from List 2.

The problem here is with who the message is addressed to, not who it's
coming from.  You could turn off the "Must posts have list named in
destination (to, cc) field (or be among the acceptable alias names,
specified below)?"  option, but that would increase vulnerability to
spammers.  The better option would be to add List 2's name to the list of
"Alias names (regexps) which qualify as explicit to or cc destination
names for this list."  (Both settings are on the Privacy Options page.)
