I tend to use grep like a local google lookup, and find a lot of
problems this way.  If "Maintenance Over" is a phrase in the message,
grep -R for it in /etc, /usr/sbin, other likely places (and go have a
cup of coffee while you're waiting!)  Locating the text file or program
from which something originates generally helps.

Thanks for clarifying, but it's still not clear.  Do you mean the
list-owner at domain.name address is subbed to the list, or the address to which
list-owner points is on the list?  Are you saying that email explicitly
addressed to list-owner at domain.name for the problem list doesn't make it
through to the referenced address(es), or just that _list traffic_ isn't
properly delivered to this address?
