Here's a final update now that this is finally sorted out.  It was just as
Mark said, HostRocket was catching the immediate notifications in some spam
filter.  After submitting a trouble ticket, they adjusted their filter and
it hasn't been a problem since.

Thanks again Mark.  All the examples appear to be for doing a transport of
an entire domain, but I did find this -
- which I think will allow me to internally route just the mailman specific
addresses for the wort.org domain locally.
