Take a very careful look at your mail system, which sounds as if its

My ISP uses POP3 for mail delivery and I have no problems receiving mail
from the Wine mailing list or anyplace else. I use two configurations
depending on where I am, but I use the Evolution mail reader, installed
on a laptop, in both cases: 

Away from home: 
       - I have Evolution configured to collect mail from my ISP's 
         mail server using POP3, leaving copies of messages on the
         server, and to deliver mail to it using SMTP.

At home: 
       - I use getmail to retrieve mail from my ISP's mailserver 
         using POP3, this time deleting mail from the server as it
         is read. 
       - Getmail passes incoming mail through the Spamassassin spam
         filter to a Postfix mail server, which uses dovecot to provide
         a POP3 mail delivery service to my home network.
       - At home Evolution is configured to get incoming mail from my
         home mail server using POP3 and to send outgoing mail to my
         home mail server using SMTP. 
       - The home Postfix server is configured to pass outgoing mail
         to my ISP's mailserver for onward delivery. This uses SMTP.

Evolution allows multiple mailservers to be configured. As they can be
enabled and disabled at will, its trivial to switch the copy on my
laptop between 'home' and 'away' server usage.
