I have RTFM and have done searches, but have been unable to find the
solution.  I'll try to be brief and include answers to questions asked
of those with similar issues in the past.

I have had mailman 2.1 installed since 2005 and it has been working
fine -- until recently.  Now, I'm not notified when a post is held for
moderation.  I may get a notice a day to several days later that I have
moderator request(s) waiting.

.  Messages not held for moderation are delivered without delay
.  Issues seem to be related to messages held for moderator approval
.  Lists have the *admin_immed_notify* set to 'yes'. 
.  The held messages do not appear in the web admindb interface
.  They also do not show up in the 'vette' log
.  cron/checkdbs runs every morning at 8 am.
.  Messages are held in ~mailman/data/heldmesg-listname-###.txt
.  Email sent to listname-owner at domain.com is successfully delivered.

.  Mailman version: 2.1
.  python-2.3.2
.  Postfix 2.1.4
.  Solaris 8 10/01 s28s_u6wos_08a SPARC (yes, I know)
.  Built from http://www.list.org/download.html back in the day

Any pointers would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance,
