I have found that our corporate mail server rejects email sent from me (me_at_company.com) that arrives at our SMTP server under the impression that mail from me_at_company.com should not originate from outside the company. When I send email to the list, the list is processed, in effect, as a big mail alias, which then gets resent back to me. Thus, it considers my posting as a forged email when it arrives here. I don't have the problem with all lists, so maybe some of them rewrite the from/envelope/return-address/whatever in the distribution process, and so they are not rejected.

Google might be doing the same thing.

I ended up turning on "send me acks" for those lists that do this.
