Guessing here, but it might be the list URLs in the headers...?  Dunno
really why though.  Especially if you have it "whitelisted"...  Perhaps
your "whitelisting" is not set up properly?  (Although if you're
running exim, I'd think that it WOULD be set up properly...)

I am perfectly capable of learning from my mistakes.  I will surely
learn a great deal today.
