I agree with Carl. The issue is with the way your server sends the mail,
not the program used to generate the mail. You need to ensure you have
full-circle reverse DNS

publishing SPF and DKIM signing outgoing mail will help.

If you want to try running Mailman, start with the INSTALL document in
the folder in which you unpacked the tarball. This will point you to the
installation manual in the doc/ folder which should guide you through
the process.

You will also need to install web and mail servers in your virtual box. E.g.

sudo apt-get install apache
sudo apt-get install postfix

You could also install the Ubuntu Mailman package

sudo apt-get install mailman

and use it, but installing from the latest source tarball is preferred.
