    By default, MM will only allow up to 10 recipients in a message header (look in ~mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py).  Anything more than that and MM will hold the message and replying to the sender that they should trim the recipient list.  Ask her to send a message to MM with less than 10 other addresses CC-ed in it.
