How do you know ?

What Mailman version is this and where are you seeing these members?

This is not the way the Membership Management... -> Membership List
page in recent Mailman works. If there are more than
admin_member_chunksize members, the list is broken into pages by the
first character of the email address. Prior to 2.1.12 there was a bug
that wouldn't show the pages for addresses beginning with a
non-alphanumeric, but that's unlikely to affect more than a few of
your members.

They should be there. If members are hidden, they may not show up on
the "roster" page depending on Mailman version and how you
authenticated, but all members should be on the Membership
Management... -> Membership List pages in any case.

What does the heading of this table look like? It should be something
similar to

                415 members total, 16 shown
[A]  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  R  S  T  V  W  Z

You aren't by chance seeing only the 152 "A"s (or whatever's first) and
never looking at the other letters/digits?

If there are more than admin_member_chunksize memners in one "letter",
there will be links at the bottom of the table to see the other
members within that "letter" but you still have to click the other
letters to see the other members.
