What do the complained-of addresses look like?  Best would be an actual
sample, but privacy may preclude that...nearly as good would be a made up
bogus address with the same collection of special characters (anything not a
through z and 0 through 9) in the same configuration.

That is, if a problem valid address were
abc/xy at example.com
you would show us something like
xyz/xy at example.com

There are characters which Mailman doesn't allow which are nonetheless valid
in email address local parts per the mail RFCs.
