Hi Brad,

Thanks for your reply. The 'admin_immed_notify' option is turned on for my 
lists and I went through the troubleshooting recommendations (following 
which I didn't need to make any adjustments to my mailman configuration).

Interestingly this morning at 8 I received notification of postings 
I had made to two test lists yesterday afternoon that had emergency 
moderation switched on. So it would seem that all notifications are
heeding the 'admin_immed_notify' option except emergency moderation.
