A message is held for "implicit destination" is the list is not
explicitly addressed in To: or Cc: of the message. See the lists web
admin Privacy options... ->Recipient filters settings for ways to
control this.

This has nothing to do with the Subject: or the envelope sender
(sendmail -r option). If Mailman's require_explicit_destination is Yes,
sending the message to the list posting address is not sufficient. The
message must also have a To: or Cc: header with the list posting address.
