[Mailman-Users] Tracing a disappearing 'post'

A user on one of the lists here complained that her posts weren't getting 
through.  I looked at the sendmail log and I see her post making it to 
the "| ...mailman  post LIST", but then the message disappeared.  I've 
looked and it is, indeed, not in the list archives.

I do get bounces and approvals [as both list admin and list moderator] 
and I've not gotten anything about this user's submissions, but still 
they appear to vanish.  The list is unmoderated ["Action to take for 
postings from non-members.." is set to Accept].  I have one filter set to 
'hold', and I *have* gotten submissions that got caught by that filter, 
so I know it is working.

What places am I missing that could get a message just to vanish?  [and 
how can I try to make that not happen, or at least log what's happening 
or email me or something]?

Thanks!  /bernie\
