These are just random addresses, never existed on my mailman machine.
Incoming gets filtered by Microsoft setup.

One thing here which I forgot is if your machine is not receiving mail directly, you may have less luck with SpamAssassin due to the mail always coming in from a downstream server.  It is easy to overcome but needs more configuration.

Are these lists which used to exist, or just random addresses on the system?

It's incoming mail we're interested in here, does that get handled directly or via filtering machines to?
