Does the umbrella list receive the message? (subscribe your own email
address to the umbrella and see if you get the post. Check Mailman's
logs, 'post', 'smtp', smtp-failure', 'vette' to see if the post got
to/through the umbrella and if/why it got discarded by the sub-lists)

The sub-list has to accept the post. This is going to depend on things
like *_these_nonmembers and generic_non-member_action for the
sub-lists or sub-list membership. You may want to subscribe - with
delivery disabled - the umbrella-bounces address (the sender of posts
from the umbrella) to each of the sub-lists.
