To what address are you sending the message? The symptoms you describe
are exactly what you'd see if you are sending to listname-owner at ...
instead of listname at ...

If you are sending to the listname at ... address, it might be an alias or
Exim/Mailman integration problem. Exim/Mailman integration is
described at http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html.

The FAQ at

owner with only web access to Mailman can do.
