My prodigy users receive list posts OK.

Absolutely, but if they are, it is unlikely that the fact that they
come from Mailman or have Precedence: list is the reason unless the
user has somehow elected not to receive Precedence: list mail.

The next step is for the user to complain to Prodigy that he is not
receiving mail that he wants to receive, and to keep beating on them
until they stop censoring his mail or satisfactorily explain what the
problem is. You can help by providing the log messages that show the
mail was sent and 'accepted' at their end.

You could try contacting Prodigy too, but I think this kind of
complaint is more likely to produce a successful result if it coms
from their customer.
