But if it's getting the info from maillog, it is only seeing the
envelope from, not the From: header, so this doesn't indicate that the
incoming From: is Trent.

Actually, the post log entry is written as the message is sent from
Mailman, the same time as the smtp log entry, so this really only says
MailScanner didn't do it on the way out.

Yes, problems that can't be reproduced are hard to diagnose, but I a as
certain as I can be that Mailman didn't do this, and I am fairly
familiar with MailScanner, and I don't think it did it either.

I still think the most likely thing is the message arrived that way at
your server, but I can't say how that happened.
