The administrator address is not a member of the list. The default 
action for non-members posting is to reject.

So it is doing what it is supposed to do.

Now there are two ways you can deal with this. You can use the 
approved: header method or you can add the administrator address to 
the accept_these_nonmembers setting under the Privacy options->Sender 
filters page.

Using the approved header is described in FAQ here:
