	Many mis-configured anti-spam systems will mis-identify mailing 
lists as "spam", or if the message comes in and does not explicitly 
list the recipient on the "To:" or "Cc:" header, then it will be 
mis-identified as "spam".  In the latter case, changing the list so 
as to use "Full Personalization" may solve the problem.

	There are various other typical problems with anti-spam systems, 
but that should give you an idea.
