Me too, but I think I'm finally getting a clue.

So Patrick S, do I understand correctly that the issue is that posts
sent out from the Mailman machine are not delivered to user addresses
on the bbs machine and that otherwise things are OK including delivery
of owner notifications from Mailman to the bbs machine?

As far Mailman is concerned, posts are sent out in essentially the same
way as owner notices. The differences are only things like the actual
headers and body and the fact that (non-VERPed/non-presonalized
anyway) posts generally have multiple recipients and messages to the
owner may have only one.

Is there an MTA on the Mailman machine that Mailman sends through or
does it deliver directly to exchange?
