That would be the To: header of the reject notice.

Mailman sends a multipart/mixed message with two parts - a text/plain
part containing the reject reason and a message/rfc822 part containing
the post as received by Mailman. It is the message in this
message/rfc822 part that is what Mailman saw. If that is not the
original post, but somehow got wrapped by Exchange in the forwarding
process, you'll have to take that into account.
