I'd suggest it probably isn't your own system as such, and there's no
need for personal embarrasment. This stuff happens all the time.
More likely the problem is that someone else's address book or whitelist
contains both your address, and the address of the list, and this has
been harvested by some local malware, or possibly from someone's
icloud/onedrive or webmail server account.
It's also possible that an e-mail to the list from you, or, to you from
the listc(more likely the latter - the mail contains your mailing list
bounce address) was sniffed while in flight. It could also have been
mined from a compromised intermediate server or data collection
repository (note Australian ISPs are legally obligated to hold metadata,
e.g. IP addresses, URLs, e-mail senders/recipients), I'd suggest this
is not unique to australia).
I guess it's also possible one of the archive copies has been mined, or
even the list server itself, but I'd expoct to see a lot more of those
coming in "from" many different listees in this case.
