The MTA that originated that message is being asked to deliver a
message received from a source outside its local domain to a
destination also outside it's local domain and has been configured not
to allow that.

This is an MTA configuration issue (or perhaps a DNS issue or possibly
Mailman using a non-local outgoing MTA issue). It is not clear to me
whether Mailman is even involved here. Does this message come on
attempt to post that doesn't even reach the list or an attempt to
deliver from the list?
