Do these users receive normal list mail?

Are there entries in Mailman's smtp-failure log from Mar 1 05:00
(assuming you mail passwords at the default time)?

There will be entries in Mailman's smtp log of the form

Mar 01 05:00:04 2006 (1570)
<mailman.12.1141218001.32762.mailman at example.com> smtp for 1 recips,
completed in 0.081 seconds

for each reminder sent. You could count these and compare that count to
the total number of unique addresses subscribed to your lists to at
least get an idea if Mailman is sending them or not (you may need to
subtract users who have opted for no reminders).
