That email wasn't sent thru the list.  It was spoofed from 
sword-devel to you (unless I missed something)
This is a common problem - most mass mail worms harvest lists of email 
addresses, and use one as their source address in emailing to the rest of the 
addresses.  That way the mail never bounces back to the infected user; it also may 
make the email more plausible, on the theory that any two users in your address 
book know each other.  Another tactic is to send email FROM you to a bogus 
address that bounces back the infected letter TO you.  In all cases the forged 
source address is NOT really compromised or infected.
