This depends on your list settings. Here are some of the common reasons why
mail doesn't reach a list when coming from a certain e-mail addres:

1. You are posting from a non-member e-mail address
2. You are posting from a moderated member's e-mail address and you have
your list configured to discard messages from moderated members.

I would check your list settings and make sure the e-mail address you are
posting from is either setup as an administrator or moderator or if you want
it subscribed as a member, make sure your moderation bit is set to off for
that particular address.
