It's the correct address. Looking at the sendmail logs, it's the correct 
address there too.

Doesn't seem to. I went directly into the config.pck file with vi to see 
what it said, it's correct with no ctrl chars embeded.

No... It's clean and correct.

I am beginning to suspect that his new mail server is rejecting list 
traffic somehow. He is in NewZealand
and so it's taking a bit of time to resolve as his days are my nights 
and vice-versa!

What's odd is if I craft an email with elm, making it look as much like 
a mailman list message as possible (Bulk, List, BCC), he gets it just fine.

What I will do next is delete his account and re-create it fresh.  Strange!
