Right, so either you need to change the list address to be 
"listname at webserver.yourdomain.example.com", or you need to set up 
those aliases on your main mail server, as previously discussed.

Alternatively, you can still add a new hostname called 
"lists.yourdomain.example.com" which has the same IP address as the 
webserver, and has an MX record which points to the same IP address, 
and then you need to change all your mailing lists to be 
"listname at lists.yourdomain.example.com".
