Question: I have mydomain.com and a mail server mail.mydomain.com. I set up a new mailing list with the name list.mydomain.com. Doesn't the email for that go to the MX record for mydomain.com ?

Answer: No. The email for list.mydomain.com will first go to the MX record for list.mydomain.com. If that does not exist it will follow the A record for list.mydomain.com. For the email to go to mail.mydomain.com you will need to create an MX record for the list name and point it at mail.mydomain.com.
