Hi again!
	I've updated mailman and python to the latest versions and the problem 
remainded for sometime, but now everything is working fine, and nobody has 
told us nothing about not receiving the mail. So i think everything went ok 
and the info is useful in case something goes wrong in the future. So thanks!
