There are at least two possibilities.

1) The messages are being held for some reason other than non-member
post. What is the hold reason? If you don't still have a held message
or notification, the reason is in Mailman's 'vette' log.

2) The address that is matched against accept_these_nonmembers may be
either the address in From: or the address in Sender: depending on the
setting of USE_ENVELOPE_SENDER in mm_cfg.py, and it has to be an exact
match against the string or pattern in accept_these_nonmembers. I.e.
if the address in accept_these_nonmembers is user at example.com and the
sender as determined above is user at mail.example.com, it won't match.
Note that in this example, if accept_these_nonmembers were
^user at .*example\.com either address would be matched by the reg exp.
