So in both cases Mailman sends to the list members (does everything
look normal in Mailman's 'post' and 'smtp' logs?), but in one case,
all 19 member posts are delivered and in the other all 32 are not
delivered because the MTA says 'user unknown'. Perhaps it is the
sender (LISTNAME-bounces) that is unknown to the MTA.

Can anyone successfully post to the problem list?
