I can think of two reasons off the top. Aliases and cPanel, although
cPanel usually uses exim with a mailman router and transport, so
aliases per se is probably not the issue.

What is the reason for rejection of the mail to the lists.

The reference above to cpanel seems to say you moved the lists to a
cPanel host. How did you move them? Were they previously cPanel lists.

cPanel mungs list names. I.e. the name of the alumni at shnc.org.au list
under cPanel is alumni_shnc.org.au and its config.pck, etc are in
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/alumni_shnc.org.au/. I don't
know if it is even possible to move a non-cPanel config.pck to cPanel
and have it just work.
