A post will be sent to all regular (non-digest) members with delivery
enabled except it will not be sent to the poster if the poster has
selected 'not metoo' and it will not be sent to any member address in
a To: or Cc: header if the member has selected 'nodups'.

If the member address that didn't receive the second post was still a
regular member with delivery enabled and was not the sender of the
second post and was not directly addressed in To: or Cc: of the second
post, check Mailman's smtp-failure log to see if there was a problem
with this delivery.
