There are various possibilities. I note from the above page that this
is Mailman version 2.1.10z3. I have no idea who produces this 'z3'
package, but possibly it is broken in this respect.

The much more likely possibility is she is subscribed with some other
address that forwards to Susan.Kubert at va.gov. If you examine all the
Received: headers in a post she receives from the list, you may be
able to figure out what this address is. You will certainly see the
domain of the Mail Exchange server that Mailman sent to.

If that is not sufficient you can wait until (hopefully) she receives a
monthly password reminder.

Also, what membership database? The one at
And how was she removed?
