Actually outgoing mail is scanned, by your service provider. This is mandatory as to avoid their range of IP addresses being blacklisted. Some SP's have a less strict scanning and blocking policy, which then passes onto multiple transports servers to the receivers SP, who might use a stricter policy and they then block and submit the IP for blacklisting.

This is how many spam and maliciousware servers are discovered and shut down, from their sending content.

That would be correct. It's the incoming mail that's scanned, not the outgoing -- and too many spam checkers look only at the IP address. It doesn't matter if there are 4000 users on your shared, hosted server; as far as they're concerned if one's guilty, all are guilty, as if we have any say over who else shares the server.

I've been getting a *lot* of failed mail notifications from the
mailing list over the last few weeks.

After extensive investigation, there doesn't appear to be anything
wrong with my mailbox or mail servers, so I'm curious, how many other
people get this, either frequently or occasionally?  Is it just me?

I occasionally get bounced mail from the different lists I'm on.  It's
usually the recipient that has the problem.
