I was under the mistaken impression that your MTA was Postfix. I was
thrown off by the fact the the MTA that attempted to send the post to
Mailman was Postfix.

As you clarified in an off-list PS, you have Sendmail on the Mailman
server, so what's in sendmail's log (the system maillog?) corresponding
to the rejected post?

This was relevant for Postfix, not Sendmail.
