>From the header of this mail, I guess the server is using sendmail 8.9.3,
then I think the solution is to add lugod.org to local relay table and
local domain names. I'm using seperate files for this purpose:
  /etc/mail/relay-domains for relay
  /etc/mail/local-host-names for local host/domain names

If the list server also has the configuration as mine, we only need to
add lugod.org to relay-domains and lists.lugod.org, lugod.org to

But I guess the sendmail.cf of the list server may not use seperated
configuration file. So it's a little big complicated since we have to
modify sendmail.cf directly.

To add lugod.org to local host names, go to look for the Cw macro, and
add lugod.org, lists.lugod.org after the local host, seperated by space.
However, I'm not very sure about this.

Hope it's helpful.
