I have the mailing list setup with "host_name" set as "cortha.org", so that the address used in the messages will be "cortha at cortha.org" and replies will go there.  The system which is actually handling the mailing list is officially named "peacock.place", but an MX points there from cortha.org.  The reverse DNS (PTR) record gives the peacock.place name, since that's the official hostname.

The list domain is not relevant here. The outgoing MTA needs to identify
itself as peacock.place in HELO/EHLO which seems to be the case, so that
should all be OK.

I would try emailing postmaster at prodigy.net.
