Thanks Mark,

yeah I am okay at mailing the listname-owner address directly.  so I just need
to Verify that Mailman is able to that as well.

there is only one list that this is happening to - to the best of my
knowledge.  I set up a test list with all members moderated and I see that the
list admins are getting notified properly. 

there are entries in the smtp logs but its difficult for me to decifer what is
going on with them.  I see that when mailman handles the moderated post on my
test list that there are three (3) associated emails in the ~mailman/logs/smtp

when I look at the logs in regards to the list that is not sending hold
notifications to the moderators/admins there is only one email.

the list name is 18 characters long and with the -owner it makes it 24
characters (without the domain name).  might that have anything to do with it?

what else can I check here?
