So that's a successful post. There should also be an entry in Mailman's
smtp log indicating the total number of recipients sent to.

This message was delivered from Mailman to Postfix and then delivered by
Postfix to Cyrus, possibly because this was to a local user and Cyrus is
acting as the LDA, or possibly for some other reason, but in any case,
if the mail wasn't delivered to the user, this is a question for Cyrus.
