This is unlikely to be a Mailman issue. It is more likely an MTA issue
or something beyond your control. Check your mailman and MTA logs to
see if things are being sent and if bounces are reported.

Multiple copies received can be due to MTA delivery issues resulting in
retries sending a message that was already received.

Missing messages can be due to bounces, spam filtering, ISP blocking
and a host of other things.
