What is in the logs?  Did you stop and restart Mailman?  Did you make 
sure that all anti-virus/anti-spam processing is turned off in this 
second MTA instance?  Did you also make sure that they turn off all 
reverse DNS checks?

This technique has been in wide use, so without more information on 
what errors are showing up on your side, it's impossible to tell what 
may have happened.
