Most likely your email server is being used to send spam to the question
mailing list. I had one email bounced back to me lucky gmail uses SPF and it
seems that the freebsd server is setup to bounce back bad SPF emails.

but maybe someone that is on your email server actually sending mails to
this mailing list prehaps hard to say but I would say. set up better
security for your email server for one if you have hundreds of emails just
sitting in your spool going to this mailing list.
