Presumably you are saying that others do receive his posts, only he
doesn't. If his settings contain "nodupes", is he possibly Ccing

Check the Mailman logs, post and smtp. The number of recipients in the
smtp log for a post should equal the number of non-digest subscribers
that aren't set to nomail minus the number of "avoided duplicates".
Careful examination/comparison of this should provide at least
circumstantial evidence of whether or not the post is being sent to
him by Mailman.
