This may be an MTA/alias issue. The real question is what is the email
host name you want to use for your list. If it is
servername.domain.com, then your list and possibly your Mailman
installation is misconfigured.

To what domain are list posts addressed? listname at servername.domain.com
or listname at domain.com.

If they are sent to listname at domain.com, and that works, what's
different in the MTA/aliases configuration between listname and

If the list addresses are intended to be at servername.domain.com, then
the list's host_name attribute should be servername.domain.com. Also
probably DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST in mm_cfg.py should be set to
'servername.domain.com', and possibly other things set in mm_cfg.py.

Don't overlook the section on "Existing versus new lists".
