I'm running Mailman 2.1.4 on a Suse 9.1 machine.  For a couple months
everything has been mostly fine.
About 2 weeks ago I setup a list for my bosses boss, I wasn't worried
since she only needed (very) a small list and we have 4000+ member list
that works fine.  As one would expect her list, of course, now has
Yesterday she sent a message to the list (first posting), and mailman
only generated 3 outgoing messages (for a list with 7 members).  I have
looked through the mailman and exim logs, and I can't find a single
error message related to that message.  Everything I find implies that
nothing went wrong, except only 3 messages were generated.  All three
people have said they got message, and the other 4 did not.  
The message is in the archives.
There are no bounce records.
All members on the list were subscribed in mass on 5 days earilier (and
therefore have the same settings). 
I ran the mailman permission and database checking tools, they didn't
find any problems.  

The only thing I can find that's unusal at all is that the moderator is
not a member on the list.

I must be missing something.  As you can imagine I'm under a little
pressure, so any hints or guidence would be much appreicated.
