One of the things I've suggested to subscribers of the QuadList (also MailMan based) is to turn on the "AKC" (Acknowledgment) function.  Every time a post is received by the list software, it sends a message like this:

Your message entitled:

SF Bay Area--Spontaneous Quad Videotape Group Dinner--Tomorrow (Wednesday)--Palo Alto--7pm--Cibo's--

was successfully received by the QuadList mailing list.

That's helped determine when there's been a problem, and our webhost support folks indicate it does seem to have some connection with DMARC.

Hope that's helpful.  And if there are any Bay Area TIG members interested in the dinner mentioned, e-mail me off-list for details.

Cheers from 120 miles north east of Silicon Valley and just west of Grass Valley...
