It doesn't seem to me that this is a Mailman issue. My best guess based
on the limited information is there is some issue with your MTA and/or
DNS configuration. It seems that mailman sent the message to the list
members, but the MTA couldn't deliver it so it bounced or forwarded
those undeliverable messages back to you.

To say anything more, we'd need to see Mailman's 'smtp', 'smtp-failure'
and 'bounce' logs, and the MTA's logs showing what it did with those
