This isn't the best solution for sure, but I start disecting and searching list members till I find something that's close...it usually works for that instance.

If I have jan.murphy at somewhere.us.mail.com, I'll find all my "jan", "murphy", 'Somewhere" and usually I find the culprit.

If I fail there, I send the person an email and ask if there is an old email that could be forwarding to the new email.

Hello all,

This is not necessarily a Mailman question, but I thought someone
administering Mailman may have come across this before.

A person is receiving mail through a list. The address that they are
currently using (@gmail.com) is not subscribed to the list. I assume that
means a subscribed address is forwarding to the gmail account. The gmail
account people don't have any idea what they could have been subscribed as.
I thought maybe the Mailman or MTA logs would show the susbscribed address
forwarding to the gmail address. However, I can't find anything, so can't
identify which address is the culprit.

Does anyone have an idea how to get to the bottom of this?
