Well, it wasn't quite so easy ...

I (via the re-directed mathaction email address) received the
follow bounce message from the axiom-developer mail list:

The reason is that ZWiki is using the Bcc: email field to send
it's email to subscribers. For security reasons (I guess) mailman
rejects messages that it receives only via the Bcc field. As a
temporary work-a-round I have changed MathAction to us Cc:
instead. This has the side effect that the list of subscribers
email addresses are visible to other subscribers. But right
now with only 4 subscribers that is not much of a problem.
Anyway, if we can forward through axiom-developer, then for
most people there would be little reason to subscribe directly
to MathAction, except for page-specific subscriptions.
