[Mailman-Users] Problem with explicit destination

We have a few lists configured to accept all mail addressed to them,  
mainly as they are email addresses on our website set for people to  
make inquiries at.

We have the lists configured to use explicit destination, and reject  
anything that is not explicity sent to the list address.

However, some mail still gets through. For example, this came in:

> To: <info at alliancecoatings.com>

But we're not alliancecoatings.com

Are the spammers forging list headers to allow the message to go  
through? If so, is there a way around this?

We're running Mailman 2.1.5 on Mac OS X 10.4 server.
