The above log message is the delivery to Mailman of the original mail
to foo-join at domain.com. We know that that succeeded because there is
now a pending subscription waiting for confirmation per the subscribe
log. This log entry is written immediately after sending the
confirmation request email.

So, what's in the sendmail (or other outgoing MTA) log for that
confirmation request message from Mailman?
