I have had the same problem sending to some XX.rr.com addresses,
buy not from a Mailman system.  I am sending from a system that
hosts many mailing lists; that system has 661 outbound IP addresses.
Obviously, I have no control when other organizations send e-mail,
and I have no control over what outbound address is used for the
SMTP connection.  And I do not know what the connection limits
are set by RoadRunner.  As Mark replied, I believe that this should
be a retryable error, but RR does not think so.  RR expects the sender
to re-send the mail at a later time.  I have had no problems sending
later (I have to re-compose the mail message); but again I do not know
if the re-send happens to be sent over a "good" (in RR terms) IP address
to the RR inbound mail servers.
