The envelope sender and the Sender:, From: and Reply-To: headers all
potentially affect whether a message is accepted or not.

I could be wrong, but I suspect you  have generic_nonmember_action set
to Discard, and the messages from MovableType are being discarded as
non-member posts. If this is the case, there will be 'Message
discarded' entries in Mailman's vette log, but they will only tell you
the message was discarded, not why. If you set forward_auto_discards
to Yes, you will receive a discard notice containing the message which
may help you determine what the problem is.
