Sounds like they have implemented greylisting as an anti-spam measure 
and have set the retry period to an hour.

Do you see anything in your MTA logs that looks something like this?

reject=451 4.7.1 Greylisting in action, please come back in 00:10:00

If so, you need to get with their sysadmin and have them whitelist 
your mailman server.
