Pre 2.1.6 Mailman was not as fussy about 'funny' characters in email
addresses as 2.1.6 and subsequent are. Thus, it is possible to have an
older address on a list which is not currently considered valid.

Have you tried 

grep '@hotmail.com' myfile.list

Also, if you made the list with --fullnames, there may be something in
the name that is causing confusion.
