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
