Okay, I set it to "server.windfinder.com" now!

Well, I don't think it is a SpamAssassin problem because regular mail (not 
mailing list) gets through. There is absolutely nothing 
in /var/lib/mailman/qfiles and sub direcotries. With the current 
configuration I do not even get a reject message.

This is what's running:
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s start
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=ArchRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=BounceRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=CommandRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=IncomingRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=NewsRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=OutgoingRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=VirginRunner:0:1 -s
/var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner --runner=RetryRunner:0:1 -s
