[Mailman-Users] Mail Forwarding Loop / List issue

I have set up a test list on a new server with a few
subscribers.  All seems to be working well, however
when I check the "Administrative Requests" on the
mailing list, I am receiving the following for a range
of messages:

Return-Path: <>
X-Original-To: thetestlist at loosehome.info
Delivered-To: thetestlist at loosehome.info
Received: by mail.loosehome.info (Postfix)

<thetestlist at loosehome.info>: mail forwarding loop for
    thetestlist at loosehome.info

These messages appear in the administrator section
because mailer-daemon is not a member of the list, and
so the attempt to access the list by the mailer-daemon
is flagged up for admin attention.

So, question to the helpful: How can I avoid this mail
forwarding loop?

Please note that the error occurs on a range of
addresses, including an account on the local machine. 
I don't think there are any genuine forwarding loops
going on... why should there be?

On a different topic, I originally signed up to this
using my own server (on a fixed, domestic IP).  Mails
were thrown out ostensibly because of the IP address. 
Is this normal practise?

Thanks in advance for any help,
