Is the list's General Options -> umbrella_list set to Yes? I suspect so.
This causes things like password reminders for members like
user at example.com to be sent to userXXX at example.com where XXX is
umbrella_member_suffix (default -owner) so that they aren't sent to the
actual member address which in the case of an umbrella list is another
list, not an individual.
