	Sounds like that one machine is munging the e-mail address when 
the message comes in, so you can receive fine but when you try to 
reply, the address is no longer correct.

	You need to find out what about that machine is broken and then fix that.

	Send a sample message through your mailing list server, and show 
us what it looks like when that message is received on an account 
which works, and what it looks like when that message is received on 
an account which doesn't.  Make sure to include *all* headers in both 
copies of the example.  And I do mean *ALL* headers, including all 
the "Received:" lines, all the "List-" lines, everything.  The body 
isn't really important for debugging this part -- it's just there to 
give you something to generate the necessary headers.

	Also show us all log entries on the server for both the input and 
two outputs, and the log entries on each of the two recipient systems.

	With that information, we might be able to figure out what's going wrong.
