Check Mailman's log files - particularly smtp, smtp-failure and bounce.

If the smtp log shows the post is sent to a smaller number than
expected, check the users settings in the membership list for 'nomail'
and maybe 'digest'. Also, are Topics defined for the list or were
Topics ever defined? This can cause members to not get all messages.
