I believe this is a DMARC issue. Yahoo, among other places, has set
their dmarc records to p=reject:

  dig +short txt _dmarc.yahoo.com
  "v=DMARC1; p=reject; pct=100; rua=mailto:dmarc_y_rua at yahoo.com;"

So, if your mail hosting provider enforces dmarc,(gmail does) and you
get mail from a list that doesn't rewrite the headers, and people
from places like yahoo post to the list, you'll likely get some form
of warning about being being kicked off the mailing list every now
and then. The frequency depends on how often people from p=reject
places post, and what the settings are for bounce handling of the
mailing list in question.

I believe that the current version of mailman can be configured to do
the necessary header rewrites. Some lists I'm on only do the rewrites
for headers of posts coming from p=reject sites (much less annoying
than having them all rewritten).
