I didn't see a reply to your e-mail yet.  I was going to point out that 
it looks from the subject line like the e-mail is being marked as
spam before it gets to Mailman, but you seem to have already concluded that.

My second guess was that the from is:

> From: "YWCA Lifeskills: Training, Coaching,
>     Publications" <ywca_lifeskills at zuka.net>

and you don't have that in your whitelist, but that's not true either.

Is your whitelist file referenced in MailScanner.conf?
