Actually, hold and 'moderator requests' notices are created via a
different method than the subscribe/unsubscribe and list creation

The former (the ones you don't get) are sent to the listname-owner
address and the others are sent directly to the list of owners (and
moderators in the case of sub/unsub).

Since you have verified that the listname-owner address actually works,
It seems there may be a problem with the way the listname-owner
address is obtained for the notification.

Do you have access to bin/withlist? If so, do

bin/withlist listname

Then at the >>> prompt type


and see what is returned (enter control-D at the second >>> prompt to
terminate withlist).

It's good you didn't see anything. You were just looking to see a
message about it exiting if there was one. Normally, things just run
and there are no log entries except when a specific mailmanctl action
(stop, start, restart) is done.

Anyway, I think we've ruled out a qrunner problem.
