That is correct.

Both of our settings have "nodupes."  We've tried having him CC: himself
and he receives that copy, so the problem isn't his MTA.

Analyzing one particular post attempted by this subscriber, the Mailman
post log shows a successful post and the smtp log shows 58 recips.
Here's my subscriber count:

acc at box:.../mailman> sudo bin/list_members -r list | wc -l
acc at box:.../mailman> sudo bin/list_members -r -n list | wc -l

Not sure how to get at the number of "avoided duplicates," though.
Could you elaborate?

Nevertheless, tracing through the Postfix log for that particular post
also yields 58 recipients.  This strikes me as very odd since the sender
is a non-digest subscriber.

Thanks for your assistance.  Any further thoughts as to what could be
causing this?
