What does the header of the message look like before it hits Mailman? 
It's just a guess, but yahoo may be using it's own address as the From
and adding the users in as a Reply-To (or vise/versa).

Check out the web-admin General Option:
Should any existing Reply-To: header found in the original message be
stripped? If so, this will be done regardless of whether an explict
Reply-To: header is added by Mailman or not.

This may be helpful - or not.

Sounds like an extension of the above problem.

If that is the case, and the option above is not helpful, you could
setup a procmail script to fix the headers before the mail is pumped
into Mailman.
