Get a copy of the actual reminder notice which will say something like

Passwords for user at example.com:

List                                     Password // URL
----                                     --------  
list_name at other.example.com              xxxxxxxx 

And verify that user at example.com is not a member of
list_name at other.example.com.

If you don't see user at example.com in the membership list, check for
possible similar garbled variants with something like

bin/list_members | grep 'likely pattern'

where 'likely pattern is things like 'user' or 'example.com'.
