Knowing about the logs helped immensely. Turned out that I neglected to 
implement all of the various list addresses in the virtual domain (there 
are a lot of em!), specifically listname-bounce and that was causing the 
smtp server to complain since the sender of the e-mail, at least from 
sendmail's perspective was listname-bounce. Anyway, problem solved - thanks
