Yes, the message came from tomas, but the email you received came from
the list server. There will be a header at the top of your email
that's being hidden from you:

 Return-Path: <bounce-debian-user=deblis=lionunicorn.co.uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

and when your email server goes belly-up, that should prevent the
bounced email going back to tomas (who has no interest in the
condition of your server).
