No, it has all of the Mailman-generated headers that show it actually
came through the list.

The "From" address is, in fact, the list address (with a fake real
name). This is a common spammers trick; I've configured all of my
Mailman lists so that the list address is not allowed to post. This
list probably HAD that, but now that the list address is different, it
doesn't match the pattern any more.

Easy fix.
