Sorry for the confusion. I'm not well versed with mail and that is
certainly showing in my question.

What I mean is that I put myself as a member goldzwei at domain.edu
And I am sending the mail as root from the box I am on to the list.
But the only mail I see show up is to goldzwei at myhost.domain.edu

I didn't make any changes to the list. I created it with newlist and
used my @domain.edu address as the owner
