It could be that you've got spam filters defined which result in
the discarding of these messages. Or, you've got the list set to
auto-discard any posting from anyone who is not a subscriber. Or,
the address in question could be on the "black list" of addresses
which should be auto-discarded.
There are a whole variety of reasons why this might happen.
Without more details from you, it's hard to say exactly why you're
seeing this behaviour. As a wild guess, try going to your "Privacy
options..." page and look at the "Sender filters" sub-page from
there. See if the address in question is in one of the fields

It's basically all the stuff that's considered questionable in
any way, and is either being held for further inspection by a list
moderator, discarded due to unacceptable content, etc.... See
