Betterwaypress may no longer be in existence, but the
betterwaypress.com domain registration is still valid through
21-Dec-2010. It appears to be currently hosted at

There is a mailman installation at the current
http://betterwaypress.com/mailman/listinfo and also at
http://lunarmania.com/mailman/listinfo, but as you have discovered
there appears to be no

There are a few possibilities.

betterwaypress.com could have been previously hosted elswhere and there
could still be a listserver2_betterwaypress.com list on that other
server. You need to look at the Received: headers in the password
reminder email you received and find out what server originated it.

The other possibility is the current Mailman installation at
http://betterwaypress.com/mailman/listinfo is broken and is still
sending reminders for the non-existent list.

Either way, you have to contact the operators of the server that is
sending you these notices and you can find that server in the
Received: headers of the notice. If you need help with this, you can
forward the entire notice to me as an attachment so it includes the
full headers, and I can tell you where it came from.
