This all depends on how the member was 'banned'.

Basically, you need to visit the list's admin page (something like
http://www.example.com/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/somelist), and check:
(1) Membership Management...: If the user is in this list, make sure
the 'mod' checkbox isn't marked
(2) Privacy Options... > Sender Filters: Make the the user's email
isn't listed in hold_these_nonmembers, reject_these_nonmembers, or
(3) Privacy Options... > Spam filters: Make sure there isn't a pattern
in header_filter_rules or bounce_matching_headers that would match a
message sent by the user.
