Let's try again.

You should already be collecting mail from both gmail and your business
ISP account.

Can you send *all* outgoing e-mail through your business ISP account?
Including list e-mail?

You can still collect list e-mail through gmail.

By the looks of things, you've already got both your gmail account and
your business account set up to send to the list, with delivery turned
off for your business account.

So list e-mail shouldn't go anywhere near your business ISP inbox.

Does this make sense?

Then Gmail won't see the e-mail until it comes back from the mailing
list, and will forward it to you normally.
