So I look through /var/log/maillog and notice a few things. Some of the
messages say stat=Sent. Others say stat=Deferred, more still say
stat=User unknown, and finally, I noticed that for many of the addresses
which failed, it says stat=Service unavailable. I think this here is
what I need to troubleshoot. Let me get you an example of a line in the

May 20 18:51:11 listserv sendmail[29107]: h4KMjPE29105:

oll at bostoncomputing.net>,<rune at bostoncomputing.net>, delay=00:05:45,
xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=esmtp, pri=2652480, relay=bostoncomputing.net.
[], dsn=5.0.0, stat=Service unavailable

At first you can look in your MTA logs.

Hi guys,
Anyone know how you can check which users on a certain list during a
given mailing got the message, and which did not? I was looking through
my error log thingy in mailman/logs and didn't see anything. Is there
somewhere else I should be looking? Last night it appears that some
people received a particular message while many others did not and I'm
trying to troubleshoot it. Frankly, I don't even know where to begin.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Best regards,
