Postfix, mailman and relay access denied

After much googling and bashing my head around I'm still no further 
ahead than what I was two weeks ago. It's time to actually ask for help. 
(Oh the shame...)

I've got a mailing list. It's a beautiful thing. It's got loads of names 
and it makes my mum very happy. Except postfix refuses to deliver mail 
to the recipients on the mailing list. I get the notice that says, "Oi! 
Someone's trying to send a message." (Which is delivered to me, a local 
user.) But then when I go in and accept the message, the actual messages 
can't get off my mail server. In fact it won't even send *me* a copy of 
the message (me == a local user).

Can anyone offer some insight on what I might be doing wrong? I believe 
I've pasted all of the relevant error messages (and the postfix config 
file) here...

thanks so much for any help you can give me!
