Depending on the lists settings, some things that could cause this are:

1) The From Email addresses isn't subscribed. It may be that it is an 
"equivalent" address that gets delivered to the same email box, but it 
differs in a way that mailman doesn't know about as being the same 
(things like mac.com, me.com and icloud.com being the same, or gmail 
ignoring . in the user name, or +hacked addresses).

2) Their client is sending HTML formatting without plain text, and your 
client adds it when you forward them.

3) They have the wrong email address for the list in their address book 
(maybe listname-bounces?)
