Ok, I think the example fits my case (3rd level domain is "lists" in my case).

Does that mean that I must have an external (from my mailman server point of
view) smtp server? That would explain everything, but that would also leave me
without a dime, because I can't reasonably identify another meaningful SMTP
server to act as smart relay for my smtp server. And no, purposely setting one
up is not an option, at least for me.

Already done since when I created my lists (I almost always set
"reply_goes_to_list" option to the list itself, unrespectful of big fat
warnings mailman shows about reply-to munging considered harmful).

I've read the whole thread, thanks. Unfortunately it does not reply to my
questions above, but maybe you have undestood the exact meaning of those
