I've heard that this particular message is an obscured content-based
rejection message.  Perhaps your message was discussing something they
didn't like, or perhaps they've banned mail referencing some
particular domain.

did that message include reference to a web site via IP address
instead of name?  they'll block those, too.

My logs show message flowing just fine from Mailman to AOL at 9:24 am
US Eastern Time, with the VERP'd return addresses.
