You probably have lists.domain.com.au set up as a CNAME alias,
pointing to proxy.domain.com.au, right? Well, don't do that. The
RFCs require that any CNAME aliases be fully resolved before the
message is sent, which will screw up your outgoing mail. Make
lists.domain.com.au resolve directly to an IP address, and that
should work for you.
But this has absolutely nothing to do with Mailman. This is an
MTA/DNS problem, and there's absolutely nothing that Mailman can do
