Is the mailman list on a server you have access to? If so, what is in
the MTA logs on that server for one of these messages? What is in
Mailman's bounce log?

It is difficult to even guess what might be happening without more
information. Someone needs to look at logs on the Mailman server to see
what is happening to the message to non-gmail recipients. I'm certain
Mailman is sending it so what is the outgoing MTA doing with it. Is it
being delivered to the MX servers for the non-gmail recipients?
