Don't need to know anything more than what you have above:


Finds a FAQ entry which explains this message:

1.9. What does "message has implicit destination" mean?
It means that the address for the list was not found in the To: or CC: 

Typically this is due to one of a couple reasons:

1) Your list has a different domain name (FQDN) than you think it does, 
or than was used as the target address of the message. See the second to 
last entry on the main list configuration page to ensure that you have 
this set properly.

2) The message was BCC'ed (blind carbon copied) to the list, and was 
actually not addressed to the list directly (not that you can see).

If you're running an umbrella list, you may want this message to be 
accepted by the sub-list. To do that, in the sub-list's admin screen, go 
to Privacy Options / Recipient Filters / Alias Names, and enter the name 
of the umbrella list as a valid alias.
