	This sounds more like a server configuration
MTA issue than Mailman settings... 

	What type of server & OS are you using?

	On the Enism's we've hit this problem in that
placing the domain name in the approved relay file
ends up causing the hops error.  The solution was
to remove relaying as the OS handled it for all 
domains on the server without an extra entry needed.
So it would relay between the original OS entry
and the approved relay entry until the max was
exceeded.  Drop the dupe, it flows perfectly.
