Not necessarily. All that says is a message was sent to the -request
address - maybe a subscribe or unsubscribe request.

Suppose you send a blank message with subject of HELP to
My2ndListName-request at Domain.name. Do you get a reply to that?

Even if your post attempts were somehow invisibly redirected to the
My2ndListName-request at Domain.name address, you should get a reply.

What is in your Mailman logs?

grep -i my2ndlistname /etc/aliases


What does the same grep show in your maillog?
