First, determine if it's actually your problem and if so, is it a Mailman 
problem or someplace else on your system. look at your mail server logs 
and see if the message went out. If the password reminder message is being 
accepted by their provider, then it is not your problem.

If you don't see it being accepted, then determine where things are 
failing on your system. Is Mailman giving it to the mail server (Postfix 
on a Macintosh)? Once Postfix has it, Mailman has done its job.
