ISTR it's an Outlook "feature", this seems plausible, given:

    Message-ID: <003b01c99d6a$93ba8ae0$bb2fa0a0$@com>
    X-Mailer: Microsoft Office Outlook 12.0

 -- so changing your MUA (not in itself a bad idea...) may help.

There are a couple of things in the list-archive (istr) detailing this.

I'd imagine the option that's holding mail is generic_nonmember_action

Why not just use a standard multi-member email alias, or perhaps, if
it's for support stuff, RT [0]?
