Checked the email addresses subscribed (using list_members), didn't see 
anything. Then I listed with fullnames (list_members -f ) and looked for 
anything out of the ordinary. Saw a question mark in one of the names. 
Looked at the user via the web interface and she had a username of 
Valeria but the e was accented. I removed her address and all is now OK.

Question:  how do I avoid this in the future?
