Thanks for the post.

Indeed, the pending moderation is on the old server so that question is answered.
Is that just a case of DNS not updating for some users? We do have that site running as a subdomain old.thatsite.coop.

But what about the subscription problem?
Is that DNS related as well?

There appear to be DNS issues. I.e Mail to the list is going to the old server, not the new.

The notice probably comes from the old server and the web URL goes to the new server.
