Thanks for the reply.

No. I do not have a static IP or a registered domain, which is why all
mail from this server has to go through my ISP's server. However,
non-mailman mail is sent just fine. If it is indeed the "MAIL FROM"
then why would my changes in mm_cfg.py, not have fixed it? On the
other hand, why would it complain about 'RCPT TO' rather then 'MAIL

RCPT TO is the SMTP command for specifying the recipient(s) of the
message. These will be the addresses of the list members or the
owner/moderator or other recipient of a Mailman generated notice.

I do not thing that is what the ISP's MTA is complaining about. I
it returns whatever reject status it is returning in response to a
RCPT TO command, but that doesn't mean it is complaining about the
recipient address.

I believe what it doesn't like is the MAIL FROM address - i.e. the
listname-bounces at host_name address. Is your list's host_name in DNS?
