I got some troubles. Mailing lists of mailman cannot receive mails from only my mail-address.

I stated trouble details in the following. The server have mailman software. Any lists created on the server cannot become aware of my mail. (I referenced /var/log/maillog, but what I sent mails is not recorded in the log.) And, the other users can deliver mails through these lists, and I can receive these mails.

Of course, I can send mails to another mailaddress except these list addresses. I think using mail-server of my mail address doesn't have any troubles.

What's happend?

Could you give me information about... - Supposed troubles - Which log file should I see?

Thank you.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

When that happened to me, it was because the SMTP connector on our Exchange server handling my email had hung. All outside addresses could send to lists...but not me.

I don't know if you're sending locally or with some other computer. What are you using to send? Outlook? webmail? the local sendmail,postfix,etc?
