It's always the following:

I've checked all config options for that ML many times, everything is
set up as "openly" as possible. I've even an entry in
header_filter_rules for "Accept" for regexp "^From:.*" -- still it
happens once in a while that messages get trapped as purported "spam"...

Regardless of what SA thinks about a message, I want Mailman to
distribute it to all subs...

Kind regards,
