Well those Exim log messages don't seem to involve the Mailman
router/transport and only mention spamassassin and don't seem to be
fatal in any case?.

Do you know the mail isn't reaching Mailman?

Is there anything in Mailman's logs (/var/mailman/logs/* by default,
but check LOG_DIR in mm_cfg.py)?

Does the list have archives? Is the post there? Does the list have
members with delivery enabled?

Look at

That part at least is correct.
