I had a similar problem, I had changed the 'public name for this list' 
by adding a space in it (even though it says very clearly only to 
change case).  Thus, it was rejecting the e-mail from others beacuse 
the list wasn't an exact match in the to/cc part of the header.

I have the problem of blank passwords during a mass-subscribe
as well, here is the e-mail that is sent to me.  I've ignored
it so far...

I apologize for being annoying/harsh in my past e-mail.  Mailman 
is way cool stuff -- I'm thrilled to be a user.
