First thing to check is the list's Privacy options...->Sender filters
member_moderation_action and member_moderation_notice.

The only way I know that Mailman could be doing this is if that message
is set as member_moderation_notice, and member_moderation_action is
set to Reject.

Assuming that is not the reason, and that posts from unmoderated
members are processed normally, what are the full headers of this
message? Is there anything in Mailman's error log or othher logs with
a timestamp within a second or so of when this message is sent?
