This is not because of Mailman, this is because they misconfigured their 
spam filter. We do run SA and others filters and I usually put all mailing 
lists we receive in the whitelist, but somehow I forgot to do it for this 
list. It's getting thru as clear ham and doesn't have any standard spam 
tagging from SA. If it gets a spam hit, then it's because of the body, not 
the headers and usually it gets BAYES_00 (= ham) for the body.
