Did you add the list aliases for the list to the /etc/aliases file 
and then run newaliases?

When you created the list, a set of aliases for it should have been 
provided as output from the newlist script or via the web interface. 
Those have to be set up properly so sendmail knows what to do with 
the addresses associated to the list.
