I have an instance of Postfix-(2.4.3) running on my Mailman-(2.1.9) host-(Mac OSX 10.5.6).
I am relatively new to both Mailman and Postfix, so I'm not sure where to look. Is there something in Postfix that may be causing this?

I don't doubt that. The question is why? What (non-standard?) delivery
method actually gets the mail from the MTA to Mailman?
