This is the problem. You have VERP_CONFIRMATIONS = Yes so the
confirmation is From: and the user's reply should be To:
mylist-confirm+8a671672b88489848cd212b368d290cc343af848 at list.server
but the user's MUA has replied To: as above.
VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP doesn't expect this and parses the cookie as
which doesn't work. Then there's been an error, so the confirm command
in the body is not processed.
The user can use a different MUA
The user can manually edit the To: to remove the "real name"
You can change VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP in mm_cfg.py to parse this one
without breaking normal ones. Possibly something like
VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP = \

It has a time still in the future, so this is normal.
