Go to the admin interface web pages and go to the Privacy
options...->Subscription rules page and look at the "List of addresses
which are banned from membership in this mailing list" (ban_list).

There you will find either this person's address or a regular
expression that matches this address. If it's a simple address, just
remove it from the list and "Submit Your Changes".

If it is a regular expression pattern that could match many addresses
(say for example something like "^.*@example\.com$" which matches
every address @example.com), you probably should explain this to
whoever is asking you to remove the ban, and ask what to do.
