Not that I am aware of that setting or subscriber (over 2000) for that
particular list. I saw email messages sent in the POSTFIX maillog to the
individual from the spamfilter (spamassasin) that was installed to work
with Postfix. Trying to work backwards, I have removed Spamassassin from
Postfix and restarted. While not sure and do not have any proof, I
wanted to eliminate this as a potential cause. 

One question: is there a report or command that I can run to see how
many members where unsubscribed from any list on our Mailman service for
a period of time. My reason is if this individual was unsubscribed, I am
not sure how many other subscribers may have been lost. Therefore, I
would like to reinstate all subscribers lost over the past two week

Thank you,
