For reasons I don't understand your instance of sendmail is *not*
talking to the MX for lists.oetiker.ch. For some reason it is
talking to localhost.
I've snipped a few of your log lines to make the relevant ones more

So that 550 isn't coming from lists.oetiker.ch, but is coming from
your own host. Can you mail to any non-local address the way you
tried to mail to that list address? My guess is not.
