Mailman expects to find listname at host_name (host_name is the list
attribute) or something that matches acceptable_aliases in a To:, Cc:,
Resent-To: or Resent-Cc: header in the message.
For historical reasons Mailman also accepts listname at anydomain, so the
difference between list at lists.example.com, list at foo.example.com or
list at example.com wouldn't be the explaination here.
