Sounds to me like your aliases aren't set up properly.

What do you actually get in your log files on your machine?  Check both your 
Exim logs and your Mailman logs.

Without this kind of information, you're flying blind ... into a Category 5

The question now is -- do you have your instrument rating, or are you VFR only?
