Check the logs of your mail server.  Make sure that the message 
actually got to Mailman.  Follow the troubleshooting tips in FAQ 4.78

This could be a problem.  You need to look in more depth to see what 
the problem is here.

This is just one recipient.  Don't you have more people on your lists 
than this?

This would definitely be a problem.  Your outbound mail server is 
rejecting everything.  You need to look at why that's happening and 
fix it, but this is a problem with the mail server and not Mailman so 
there's not likely to be much that we can do to help.
