First, figure out how many recipients there should be. Get the possible
bin/list_members --regular --nomail=enabled listname | wc -l
Then figure out how many of those won't receive this post - the poster
if the poster has "Receive your own posts to the list?" set to No and
any list members directly addressed in To: or Cc: that have "Avoid
duplicate copies of messages?" set to Yes - and subtract from the
Then go to Mailman's smtp log and find the message like:
Jan 10 13:03:41 2008 (368) <message-id> smtp to listname for nnn
recips, completed in t.ttt seconds
and verify that nnn is the expected number.
You can also check Mailman's smtp-failure and bounce logs for failed
deliveries and bounces reported to Mailman.
Beyond that, you have to ask the outgoing MTA.
