Ok, this gets more curious now. I created another list called
Authorized and I put my alternate email address in that list. Then I
changed the test list so so that the "accept these non-members" had
@authorized. I got one message through but then I could not longer seem
to get into the lists test or authorized via the web interface or via
the command line. So I deleted both of these lists and started fresh.
I created test as a list again but this time I gave my authorized list a
new name, nclack. I then made it so that @nclack was sin the "Accept
these non-members". I sent two messages, one as a member of the list
test and then the other as the user I input in the nclack list. I got
no messages at all, so I stopped Mailman and then restarted it. Within
two minutes I had both of my emails. I'm not sure what is going on here
but I found this rather odd.
